Delayed Harvest Delights

Record #:
The North Carolina Wildlife Commission began its Delayed Harvest Program twenty years ago. The program currently covers twenty-one streams and one lake. Regulations require that all fishermen release the trout they catch between October first and the first Saturday in June. They must fish with a single hook artificial lure or fly. Beginning in June, fishermen are allowed to keep seven trout a day. Dean discusses other requirements of the program which is one of the Wildlife Commission's most popular.
