NC - Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters Open April 7
Another item to mark on your calendars, especially for trout anglers, is the opening of approximately 1,100 miles of hatchery-supported trout waters in 25 counties at 7 a.m. on April 7. While fishing on hatchery-supported trout waters, anglers can harvest a maximum of seven trout per day, with no minimum size limits or bait restrictions. The season runs until March 1, 2013. Find out where to fish by downloading a trout fishing map for each county. These maps give anglers a guide to fishing regulations in effect on specific streams. They also provide locations of all waters open to public trout fishing.
