Frequently asked questions about fly fishing regulations
Is Trout Season Closed During the Month of March?
By Doc Trout
In my capacity as a fly fishing guide, I am often asked if Trout season here in North Carolina is closed during the month of March. The answer to that question is that while trout season is closed from the end of February to the first weekend in April on Hatchery Supported waters, it is open year-round on both Delayed Harvest and Wild waters. Thus, western North Carolina has great trout fishing available all year.
