Abstract:
While other fishing locations like the Gulf of Mexico and along the Outer Banks are more well-known, the Pamlico River has opportunities for fishermen--\"a river not taken by many.\" Rowe points to its location in relation to the Gulf Stream which brings a variety of species from the North and South. Its remoteness is also one of its biggest attributes--it's pristine and unspoiled. The Pamlico offers fishermen four saltwater sport fish--striped bass, flounder, speckled trout, and puppy drum, also called red fish. Secondary species are numerous and include white perch, largemouth bass, bowfin, croaker, and Spanish mackerel.
