Default Tuck and Didymo

From the NC Wildlife Resources Commission:

Nuisance Algae Found in Tuckasegee River

Trout anglers fishing in western North Carolina waters are advised to be especially diligent about cleaning their fishing equipment after didymo was found in the Tuckasegee River in Jackson County. Didymo, also called rock snot, is a nuisance algae that can produce thick algal mats along stream bottoms, altering stream habitats and making fishing difficult. This discovery marks the first time didymo has been found in North Carolina. Learn more about didymo and steps you can take to avoid spreading the algae to other waters.

* This marks the second time in a short period that NC has or is experiencing more problems on their state trout waters. NCWRC reported gill lice in some trout and even whirling disease on the Watauga last year.

** Many of us enjoy fishing in NC and other areas. Use common sense when fishing in streams regardless of if infected or not. Don't fish more than one tributary system in a single day or have a second set of gear if changing waters to fish. Allow gear to thoroughly dry or use a disinfectant solution to thoroughly spray your gear!

*** Be responsible and a conservationist. Let's keep Georgia's waters clean!!!
