Introduction
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is the state government agency created by the General Assembly in 1947 to conserve and sustain the state’s fish and wildlife resources through research, scientific management, wise use, and public input.  The Commission is the regulatory agency responsible for the enforcement of N.C. fishing, hunting, trapping and boating laws.

Striped bass harvest on the Roanoke River ends at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, as specified by rule. Data collected by Wildlife Commission creel clerks interviewing anglers who fished the Roanoke contributed to the decision-making process.

Still haven't found a gift for dad? Give a subscription to Wildlife in North Carolina magazine. At $12 a year, it's cheaper than a tie -- and he'll love it.

This is a fish attractor! Artificial structures, such as this one, are used to mimic natural cover such as downed trees, submerged logs, and in some cases rocks and boulders. Fish use cover for a variety of reasons: to hide from predators, to forage (eat), and to reproduce. Predatory fish such as crappie and largemouth bass are attracted to these structures because either forage fish (bait) are using the attractors and predators are more easily able to forage or these structures provide hiding cover for predatory fish to ambush their prey as they approach the attractor.

Did you get outdoors this weekend? We did, and saw this heron and a pile of turtles sunning themselves.
