Roanoke River Fishing Topics to be Discussed in Plymouth
The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the Town of Plymouth invite the public to attend a fisheries information meeting at the Vernon James Center on Thursday, April 13 at 7 p.m.
Wildlife Resources Commission fisheries biologists will present an overview of current fisheries research projects on the Roanoke River. Topics to be discussed include management of striped bass, recovery of largemouth bass following Hurricane Isabel and American shad restoration.
"The Roanoke River, with its diverse recreational fisheries, is a national treasure that weÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢re fortunate to have right here in our own backyard," said Chad Thomas, coastal research coordinator with the Commission. "We have a wide range of management programs in place on the river, and weÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d like to take this opportunity to share our findings and discuss fisheries issues with the angling public."
