State to open Roanoke River striped bass season on March 1
Creel, slot limits remain in place for 2013 season
Beginning March 1 and running through April 30, fishermen can creel two striped bass per day from the Roanoke River and its tributaries, with certain size restrictions.
The daily creel limit in the Roanoke River Management Area is two striped bass per angler. The minimum length limit is 18 inches, and no striped bass between 22 and 27 inches can 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 US 258 Bridge near Scotland Neck to Roanoke Rapids Lake Dam.
From early March until the end of May, the Commission will post online weekly fishing reports from the Roanoke River every Thursday afternoon. The fishing reports, along with other updated information on striped bass fishing and boating access areas, will be posted on the Commission’s fishing page. www.ncwildlife.org/fishing .
