Fishing at New Bern has been excellent. The warmer weather has kept the fish active and anglers have enjoyed better than expected spotted seatrout fishing. The Specks are being caught in both the Neuse and Trent Rivers and most of the area’s creeks close to New Bern.
Striped bass, as typical for this time of the year, remains the jewel of New Bern’s winter fishing. Morning and evening top water fishing has been good and we’ve experienced some amazing sub-surface bites. Anglers can anticipate the striper fishing to remain excellent through the winter.
Pan-fish; white and yellow perch and crappie fishing has also been excellent for those who enjoy light tackle fishing. The waters around New Bern hold giants for the three species. They can add to a fun day on the water and are outstanding table fare.
