I see the Pamlico sound is above 50. When do the puppy, trout, stripers, etc start to move into the sound? Or have they?

It'll be a while yet,temps will rise and fall with wind and tides.. I wouldn't plan on catching fish back there until after late March,depending on how long this winter stays here... :rolleyes:

Drumdum's right...don't plan on it.


They're catching puppies, trout, and dogfish at Cape Point.

For the Pamlico in general, look for areas with dark bottoms...probably your best bet for places to hold fish. Minimal currents, relatively deep water, midday times, and probably along the western shore is your best bet.

Their will be alot more action in the tidal rivers during late March, April.

when you say dark bottoms are you referring to muddy bottom?
