in Western North Carolina
Whether you are a trout fisherman, bass fisherman, panfish lover, or you
go for Walleyes or Yellow Perch, we have it here in WNC. There are several
good or excellent lakes in this area, and many fine rivers. I will share
some of my favorites, and some of the methods for catching fish in them
in these pages.
There are a number
of licenses, and the fees change from year to year, so I will not show
any prices. The best way to find out is to call the toll free number in
Raleigh. Right now, there are short term licenses for visitors to the area,
and yearly licenses for folks who want to fish more often. Remember, the
non-resident licenses cost more than resident. (We pay state taxes.) Licenses
can be gotten at many places; K-Mart and Wal-Mart to name a couple. Remember,
if you fish for Trout, you will need a Trout License for any Designated
Mountain Trout Water, and a Gamelands permit for fishing on any NCWRC Gameland.
Best bet is to buy a Comprehensive license, or a Sportsman's if you plan
