I have only caught 1 Red Fin since I started fishing. Thanks for the info. about Reidsville Lake, never fished that lake. I have fished Lake Hunt and was told they have plenty of Chain in this lake, never caught one plenty of bass. Now since Reidsville took over this lake again and now open to the public, no one has caught a bass over 7 #'s plenty of dinks. Couple years ago you could catch 10 pounders even 11 pounds. But a friend seen a person caught fish from Lake Hunt and was on the corner selling them and they were 9/10/11 pounders. For me I love using swim baits and worms and spoons for chains.

the only good access points on the rocky are the ones marked "park here and we'll tow your a--" for 200 yards either side of the river. Man if we had public access there, the water is beautiful-- rock gardens, ripples, etc. everywhere else, a silty mess.
If you have not already you may want to try the section just downstream of the last dam/lake. There is about 1.5 miles of rocky structure and steep gradient below the last dam. The gradient here tops out about 30-40 ft./mi. so floating would not be a practical approach to cover this territory. I had hoped to have fished this stretch but have scratched this one off my bucket list. I would enjoy reading a report in lieu of fishing it.
