Below are the general guidelines regarding a fishing license on Lake Norman:
Persons under age 16 are exempt from the requirement of a basic fishing license.
A resident may fish with natural bait in his county of residence without a basic fishing license. “Natural Bait” is any bait that can be beneficially digested by fish. An individual must carry a form of identification that shows his or her photograph, name and current address. This exemption does not apply to the special trout license.
July 4th is declared “FREE FISHING DAY” and a fishing license is not required on this date.
Fishing licenses are available at Wal-Mart, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Gander Mountain.
