Hatchery-Supported Fishing Starts on Saturday

Hatchery-Supported Fishing Starts on Saturday
Get your tackle box organized, because fishing on hatchery-supported waters starts on Saturday at 7 a.m. It looks to be a promising fishing season, as the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is stocking local rivers with over 800,000 trout. The majority of fish released this year average approximately 10-inches in length, with a small percentage exceeding 14-inches! (Bring a camera to ensure bragging rights for years to come.)

Hatchery-supported waters are marked with green and white signs. Asheville-area fishing spots include:
Ivy Creek/Ivy River (Dillingham Creek to U.S. 19-23 bridge)
Dillingham Creek (Corner Rock Creek to Ivy Creek)
Stony Creek
Mineral Creek
Corner Rock Creek
Reems Creek (Sugar Camp Fork to U.S. 19-23 bridge, except where posted against trespassing
Swannanoa River (S.R. 2702 bridge near Ridgecrest to Wood Avenue bridge, except where posted against trespassing)
