Default Re: Illegal fishing in park

Call it "profiling" but if I was a Wildlife official I believe I would target those with spin reels and a bucket o worms before anyone with a fly-rod in their hand. I'm no elitist but you've got to start somewhere.....Last fall I went fishing on the Davidson River, which is in the Pisgah National Forest, it took a Ranger about 15 minutes to find me and ask to see my NC fishing license, which I glady displayed. This guy actually wanted to know if I had seen anyone else fishing nearby

Also, although it was just outside of the GSMNP boundary, I once saw a guy "chumming" with a bucket of corn.

Furthermore, I'd be willing to donate to get some HUGE signs posted with GSMNP regulations posted
