Aquatic Ecology Class Students Educate Local Children About Life in Our Streams

Instructor Chris Graves led his FWL 234 Aquatic Ecology students in assisting the Trout City Kickoff for Waynesville on July 1st. There was coverage of the event in the Mountaineer including a letter to the editor from a parent specifically thanking the students. Pictures will be forthcoming. Until then a little background on the event is provided below.

The designation allows people to buy a three-day fishing license to fish for trout along the designated waterway. Children 16 and younger can fish for free.

The other Mountain Heritage Trout Waters are on the North Toe River in Newland and Spruce Pine, Cane Creek in Bakersville and Jonathan Creek in Maggie Valley. Visit

WAYNESVILLE – The town of Waynesville on Tuesday celebrated its designation as a Mountain Heritage Trout City and a 2-mile stretch of Richland Creek as one of five N.C. Mountain Heritage Trout Waters in Western North Carolina.
