Join the NC Wildlife Resources Commission Thursday March 31st at 7:00Pm for a presentation by David Goodfred NCWRC fisheries biologist.
At this meeting, you will be updated on findings of the NCWRC’s smallmouth bass research, which includes great smallmouth bass fisheries such as the French Broad, Little Tennessee, Tuckaseegee, and Nolichucky Rivers. Also, you will be introduced to other great smallmouth bass fisheries across the state.
All of this information has come from a 3 year study which objectives were to identify smallmouth populations, collect life history information, and evaluate stream management opportunities. Over the course of this study fisheries biologists collected more than 2,800 smallmouth bass from 42 stream stretches.

DRO Spokesman Walter Parrott has his clients displaying their trophy smallmouth for the camera. Warm temperatures and lack of rain have made the smallmouth bite as strong as ever. Walter has reported several fish being caught over 5 lbs on top water and various baitfish patterns.
