Made the call to the bullpen. Got the Wildlife Commission’s writer of the Roanoke River fishing report warming up.
The weekly fishing reports will begin next week and will be posted within the Commission’s “Conserve & Protect” blog.
Meanwhile, if you have time this week to head up to Weldon, the shad fishing is heating up, according to Bobby Colston, owner of Colston’s Tackle Box on Highway 48 near Gaston.
“They’re catching shad pretty good right now,” Colston said. “They’ve actually been catching shad off and on for about two weeks, but the fishing’s been getting better and it’s pretty steady this week.”
Colston said most of the anglers he’s talked to have been fishing from the shore.
“The water is low and everybody is fishing from the bank near the [Weldon] boat ramp,” he said.
