The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has fired up its new trout fishing webpage, which provides useful information for trout anglers looking to know more about their favorite outdoor pastime.
“We wanted to consolidate all the trout-related information on our website into one page so that trout anglers could find the information they needed as quickly and easily as possible,” said Jacob Rash, the coldwater research coordinator for the Wildlife Commission’s Division of Inland Fisheries.
The website includes features such as maps of public mountain trout waters for fisherman looking to try out a new stream. It also publishes up-to-date information such as when delayed-harvest regulations go into effect or what the size and creel limits are for hatchery-supported waters.
Information on seasons and limits for all the seven trout stream classifications in North Carolina is accessible alongside current trout stocking information and materials discussing characteristics of the three trout species found in the state.
