Trout waters set to open; youth go first

Written by 

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will open approximately 64 miles of trout streams and two lakes known as delayed-harvest trout waters on June 1, with a special head start for youth anglers.

From 6 a.m. until noon that day, only anglers 15 years old and younger will be allowed to fish on those waters. At noon, everyone can fish.

The delayed-harvest waters will stay open through Sept. 30. During this time, anglers can keep up to seven trout per day — with no bait restrictions or minimum size limits. The commission stocks the delayed-harvest waters from fall through spring with high densities of trout. Once summer arrives, waters become too warm for trout to survive so the streams and lakes are opened for fishing. Delayed-harvest trout waters are posted with diamond-shaped, black-and-white signs.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
