You know that spring is just around the corner when the crocus blooms pop up in the front yard, robins start digging for worms in the garden, turkeys start their spring gobbling, grouse start drumming, and state fish and game agencies start stocking trout streams! Well it might not be spring yet but the NCWRC has released the Spring 2012 stocking dates so we can start getting the fishing gear back in condition. As usual the LOS chapter will be assisting the NCWRC in stocking the North Mills River on the dates marked in red below. We meet at the North Mills campground parking lot at 10:00 AM each morning and please bring your waders and lots of energy–those buckets can get a little heavy. For more information visit the website “Stocking” page. See you streamside!
