    After the rain pottery

    Western NC got a lot of rain last night and the creek is muddy, high in some spots and running fast but my son and I got out and poked around some of the sand/pebble bar spots just to see if there was anything washed up. Will be back out next weekend to see what else washed up and hopefully a point will be hanging out for finding But in the meantime I love pottery and wasn't unhappy to at least find this nice thick one and it's about 3" long.

    Nice piece of pottery. You have gravel bars in that creek. There has to be points too. Good luck.

    I've found a few but not as many as pottery. Hope when the water recedes to find more.

    Have you tried digging the sand bars near the bends in the creek ? There’s a few videos on YouTube of people digging and sifting and have pretty good luck some of the points are a few feet down

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Yes I do that and have found quite a few nice things. The Palmer in my avatar was in a sandbar that had a lot of very small pebbles in it and I was raking it with a small hand leaf rake and letting the water rinse it, almost lost the Palmer but was very quick lol I've found some larger points digging under the bank and pulling up larger rocks and also found a large soapstone bowl piece like that too. A few have been sitting on top of rocks after a day like today. The creek is long and takes me a while to work through it after flash flooding and I normally find stuff after one. Today I really didn't expect to find anything and was lucky to find the pottery shard.

    Yep that is one nice looking creek. A creek with pottery is pretty cool. Have you ever found the site? The creek over time could have moved right through the middle of it. Good to see ya finding things in high water.

    No the site remains elusive but the creek always gives pottery after a flash flooding rain so hoping to find even more when the water goes down.

    Nice find Peaches like you said hopefully something else will be waiting on you on your next trip. No hunting for me for a while with all the rain here. Must of gotten 10-12 inches already and every inch equals a foot of water in my area. They say rain for another week here. It will be fun when it goes down though, rock

    Nice find and nice pics, I like seeing the kinds of creeks people hunt (haven't had much luck in creeks yet).
