When to Fish The Tuckasegee
The Tuckasegee River fishes best near Sylva and Webster, North Carolina. Because of its moderate elevation, the Tuckasegee River experiences more moderate winter temperatures than some of the other rivers mentioned. However, the Tuckasegee River is less susceptible to temperature fluctuation as this river is a tailwater with its flow controlled by a hydroelectric dam upstream. The Tuckasegee River fishes best in the Fall and Spring. The specific dates for best fishing are October 1st to the first Saturday in June. This is due to the Delayed Harvest regulations that the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission has set for this river.
