As we turned into Adams Creek, we noticed right away that the entire Creek outside the marked channel, and even in the channel, was covered with floats for fish traps. We can not ever remember there being so many here in the past. It wasn’t until we had reached the turn off to our anchorage at Cedar Creek that we noticed that the floats also carpeted the entire anchorage area and there was practically no space to anchor that the boat would not swing over a float. This is a total shame since this was, until now, a very popular anchorage stop and would often be filled with boats heading north or south. We can only assume they have overfished the Neuse River and now are concentrating all their efforts in the smaller creeks. It was getting late and the question was, now what?
