Default Striped Bass Season On Roanoke Opens March 1st

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will open the entire Roanoke River Management Area to striped bass harvest from March 1 through April 30.
The Roanoke River Management Area includes the Roanoke River and tributaries from Roanoke Rapids Lake Dam downstream to Albemarle Sound, including the Cashie, Middle and Eastmost rivers.
The daily creel limit within the Roanoke River Management Area is two striped bass per person. The minimum length limit is 18 inches, and no striped bass between 22 and 27 inches may be possessed at any time. Only one striped bass larger than 27 inches can be included in the daily creel limit.
Anglers are required to use a single barbless hook or a lure with a single barbless hook when fishing in the upper Roanoke River from April 1 through June 30. The upper Roanoke River is defined as the main river channel and all tributaries, upstream from the U.S. Highway 258 Bridge near Scotland Neck to Roanoke Rapids Lake Dam. Anglers can make hooks barbless by crimping down the barb.
Striped bass anglers are encouraged to use small, non-offset circle hooks, preferably ones with the least amount of distance between the hook point and shank.
Studies show that striped bass caught on small, barbless circle hooks are usually hooked in the jaw, which means they have a much greater chance of survival after being released than fish hooked in the throat or gut.

Fishermen cannot have bass between 22 and 27 inches at any time.
Anglers are required to use a single barbless hook or a lure with a single barbless hook when fishing the upper Roanoke River from April 1 through June 30. Anglers can make hooks barbless by crimping down the barb.
The NCWRC has a pocket-sized information card on releasing stripers safely available at its Web site, www.ncwildlife.org. The commission will post online weekly reports from the Roanoke River every Thursday.
For more information on fishing in public, inland waters, call the Division of Inland Fisheries at 919-707-0220.
