Catch-and-release rules go into effect

Delayed Harvest Trout Waters regulations are now in effect on 34 trout waters in Western North Carolina.

On these waters, no trout can be harvested or possessed between Oct. 1 and one half-hour after sunset June 1, 2018. Anglers cannot possess any natural bait and may fish only with artificial lures with a single hook.

During fall and spring, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission stocks these waters with high densities of trout to increase anglers’ chance of catching fish. Delayed Harvest Trout Waters are posted with diamond-shaped, black-and-white signs and are popular with anglers who enjoy catch-and-release fishing.
