Delayed Harvest Stocking
The Delayed Harvest* (DH) season for 2022 will continue this fall. The LOS TU chapter is happy to support our annual commitment to help the Setzer Hatchery by stocking the North Mills River and Spring Creek.
Our first stocking begins at North Mills River on Tuesday, October 4. Plan to meet at the N. Mills Campground at 10 am to organize for the day. Neal Labrie will lead that stocking but he needs your help to be successful. That weekend will probably be packed with people but if you can get out there for a weekday, you may find a more enjoyable environment. November stocking of the N. Mills is scheduled for Wednesday, November 9.** Brian Gustin will lead that effort. (To contact Brian, use email@example.com email address.)

For Spring Creek, we will stock on Wednesday, October 12. The stocking truck seems to be getting there earlier than in the past. So, let’s plan to meet at 10:30 am to get organized. We meet in the parking lot behind Big Pillow Brewing. Steve Burton will lead that stocking but he needs your help to be successful. (To contact Steve, use firstname.lastname@example.org email address.) November stocking is November 1.**

*Delayed Harvest (DH) ‘season’ is October 1, 2022 until June 3, 2023. During this time, all trout caught in the DH streams must be returned unharmed to the stream. Additional regulations include only artificial, single hook lures, no live bait, and no scent enhancements. Please be sure to check NC Wildlife Commission regulations for other special rules during this period.
**Stocking dates listed above are subject to change due to unexpected events especially weather. Changes will be announced through social media and on ncwildlife.org sometimes on a weekly basis.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
