Changes in habitat quality, toxic waste, and overfishing led to a decline of the striped bass, or rockfish, in the Albemarle Sound-Roanoke River ecosystem in the 1970s and 1980s. Regulating harvest and Roanoke River flows are helping the species recover.
Volunteer anglers and paddlers participated in a study to evaluate stream flow on the Catawba River and assess the effects on fishing potential. The results will be used as part of Duke Power’s licensing process to continue operation of Linville Dam hydropower facility.
