Proposed changes for the 2012-2013 season: 

A couple of new DH waters are being considered for 2012-2013. They include (but are not limited to) 0.6 miles of the Catawba (McDowell Co. portion), 1.5 miles of Elk Creek (Wilkes), and reclassifying the lower 2.5 miles of Big Horse Creek (Ashe) as DH. We'll see what happens! To see the full list of proposals, click here.

Hmm...no Fires Creek DH water? Heard that was coming....sure would take a little pressure off the Nan. Oh well. Thanks for posting these Tyler. Good to know the regs.

Yeah, it's odd for sure. Fires Creek is Hatchery Supported, but don't know why they haven't designated it as DH. As we all know, HS can be good at times and it can be bad at times. Mostly bad. Maybe they'll add it in the future...

I'm really surprised elk creek is going to be DH that creek is tiny.
