The Cape Fear River drainage system has received some new inhabitants when the NCWRC stocked it River and some of its tributaries with 32,000 spotted bass fingerlings.
At one time spotted bass were probably native to some stretches of rivers in the western part of the state; however, current populations have been introduced either by wildlife agency stocking programs of the 1970s, or more recently by fishermen. While anglers enjoy the fish's scrappiness, its introduction could have a negative impact on other bass.
