The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission said they will open approximately 1,000 miles of hatchery-supported trout waters to anglers in 25 western counties at 7 a.m. Saturday. The trout fishing season will run through Feb. 28, 2015.
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 NCWRC said.
Anglers are urged to download trout fishing maps which show trout fishing locations in each county and additional fishing regulations in effect on specific streams.
