Stocked fisheries set to open
More than 1,000 miles of hatchery-supported trout waters will open for anglers in the 25 western counties at 7 a.m. April 4, with the season running through Feb. 29, 2016.
These waters are stocked from March to August each year, many of them monthly, to improve the experience for anglers fishing them. On Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters, anglers can harvest a maximum seven trout per day, with no minimum size limit or bait restriction.
Stocking dates and locations are posted at www.ncwildlife.org/fishing/hatcheriesstocking/ncwrcstocking.aspx.
