    Default Trout Water Restrictions

    Why are there some restrictions on trout waters (here in NC)? There are natural bait, artificial lures, artificial flies, and limited daylight fishing hours.

    Natural bait. I see nothing wrong with using animals that naturally live in the water as the trout...insects, minnows, and the like.

    Daylight hours? Is this to keep people from snagging tree limbs and failing to retrieve the flies/lures?

    Artificial flies? Is this a traditional aspect with trout?

    I ask because I have never fished anywhere that has these restrictions.

    Cheers,

    Robert

    I bet you'd get your best answer, albeit perhaps not the most satisfying or commonsensicle (is that a word) by asking the NC fisheries guys. Although you'll probably get some great guesses and opinions here, lol!

    I'll take a stab at it and say it's the same as around here, and that's for the preservation and growth of the trout. That's generally speaking and not to the specifics of each regulation and how they achieve that preservation but in each reg you've stated it occurs to me that it is feeding related, whether it be time of day or type of food, artificial vs. live.

    Really, Robert, the more I think about it, your question, "Why are there some restrictions on trout waters in NC?" is certainly best answered by the NC fisheries guys. I'm thinking bantering the question here is a waste of bandwidth.

    i'm assuming that such regs are enforced to help protect otherwise volatile
    trout populations.
    i know that they have some similar regulations in alaska during the summer that were created for wild salmon.

    Are you serious?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    As Siskel and Ebert use to say, two thumbs up!

    That reminds me....I once asked 2 game wardens why certain fish are considered "game fish" while other fish are not. Both wardens replied "I don't know."

    Mojo,

    I am serious. Some trout waters here in NC have restrictions. Check out the NC fishing regs...they're online!


    Casey and Bruce,

    Thank you for the insight.


    Madjoni,

    I enjoy learning, and I'd welcome the opportunity to see European rules.


    Littledavid,

    If you have something meaningful to contribute, and you are a trout angler, I welcome your reply. I invite you to review NC fishing regs along with Mojo.


    Cheers,

    Robert
