New NCWRC Regulations

Post by Tyler on Mon May 31, 2010 3:55 pm

The NCWRC has amended/created a few regulations (okay a whole list) for 2010-2011. There's some interesting changes for NC anglers. No new DH streams we're created though. You can find the whole list here http://www.ncwildlife.org/Regs/documents/Public_Hearing_Book.pdf. Scroll down to page eight in the handbook to find the Trout Fishing Regulations. The new HS waters on the Yadkin caught my eye. We'll see how that works out...

A few of the NCWRC's regulation changes:

Trout

F6. Tellico River (Cherokee County) – Reclassify the Wild Trout/Natural Bait section
to Wild Trout Waters.
Justification: Proposal F6 will simplify rules by classifying all waters in this
area as Wild Trout Waters.

F7. South Toe River (Yancey County) – Reclassify the headwaters section from Wild
Trout to Catch-and-Release/Artificial Flies Only Trout Waters.

F8. South Toe River (Yancey County) – Reclassify the Catch-and-Release/Artificial
Flies Only section to Wild Trout Waters.

F9. Upper Creek (Yancey County) – Reclassify from Catch-and-Release/Artificial
Lures Only to Catch-and-Release/Artificial Flies Only Trout Waters.

F2. Yadkin River (Caldwell County) – Classify 2.0 miles of this river as Hatchery-
Supported Trout Waters.

F11. Nantahala River and tributaries (Clay and Macon counties) – Remove the exception
that allows fishing during the closed season on Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters
upstream of Nantahala Lake.
Justification: Proposal F11 will simplify rules by making the fishing season
consistent with other Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters in the area.

Muskellunge

F32. Statewide – Establish a 42-inch minimum size limit and one-fish-daily creel
limit for muskellunge.
Justification: Proposal F32 increases the minimum size limit for muskie from
30 to 42 inches and will conserve spawning stock by protecting 4-5-year-old,
sexually mature fish. This will also simplify regulations by standardizing them
across state waters and with regulations for the New River in Virginia.

F33. French Broad River – Eliminate the current 46-inch size limit in favor of a new
statewide regulation (F32).
Justification: Proposal F33 will decrease the size limit for muskie in the French
Broad River from 46 to 42 inches and will standardize regulations statewide,
while protecting sexually mature fish.
