This is a recent Duck hunt this year cant give away the spot though its a
secret but it is in the deep water close to the dam. These are 2 redhead drakes
I shot next to the last Saturday of the season before it went out. As any duck
hunter knows on High Rock it is rare to see redheads so I was absolutely shocked
when I saw a flock of 9 fly in and I layed out 2 drakes that was the greatest
duck hunt all year. My name is Ryan Mahaley from Salisbury, NC.

dark in early September.

It is often said like father like son. This dad is surely putting
bad ideas in this boy's head. Fishing can only lead a younger
generation down the right road.
Way to go "dad"

Patterson of Spencer and friend had a good day. Stringers like this are
not uncommon when the water is right and you have done your home work. These are
big ones. It takes you doing your homework, having the right gear and
getting your bait in the right spot to land fish like these.

Lyerly did his homework. These are High Rock crappies.
A recent successful Canada goose hunt in Rowan County. These proud
sportsmen, from left to right. Brian Stewart of Columbia, SC, Sam Krohn of
Salisbury, NC, Jason Patterson and Chip Miller of Spencer, NC are touting a near
limit taken in an open pasture just a few miles from High Rock Lake. Rowan
County is home to a very large resident population of geese that traipse back
and forth from the river and local farm ponds to the local grain fields of the
county farmers daily.
The lake area also provides great duck hunting when the conditions are right.
Again, Jason and Brian bring home the meat. Notice the leg band.
Often times when the hunting traffic gets to great on the main lake the birds
move into potholes and marsh areas of the Yadkin/PeeDee lakes. Some of the
best hunts in Rowan/Davidson Counties are in very secluded places.
Please identify this orange nosed, orange footed, speckle bellyed head and necked canada goose shot in Rowan
