Eno River

The Eno River is clear, cool stream north of Durham. It is not like most rivers in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain region because it has a nice rocky bottom for most of it's course instead of a sandy silty bottom. Went up to fish for some Redeye bass recently and sometimes I could imagine that I was in the mountains. The Redeye bass is native to the river and only lives in a few streams in northern North Carolina and southern Virginia.

I mainly caught bug bites on this day, and I am still not sure what it was...definitely more bug bites than fish. I caught a lot of fish, mainly small sunfish and bluegill....But I caught a lot more bug bites. I had pictures to prove how many bug bites but I will spare you those.
Cool water, hot day.

A fun little bass

One of many sunfish.
