Thanks to those of you who took a couple minutes to write a letter or email. This came from Jim Mabry our recent RRTU president who I believe is now serving at a State level for TU. If all goes well, it looks like we will have few more streams to fish here in the near future. Make sure to support the COnservation Fund if you can.


Wildlife Commission Pledges Support for East Fork Headwaters

RALEIGH, N.C. (Nov. 4) – The Commissioners of the N.C. Wildlife Resources
Commission unanimously passed a resolution Thursday, pledging the agency’s
support for the management and stewardship of the East Fork Headwaters, an
8,000 acre tract of biologically diverse land in Transylvania County.

During meetings on Wednesday and Thursday, the Commission agreed to manage the
land if the Conservation Fund raises the money to purchase it. The Conservation
Fund, a nonprofit land protection organization, is under contract to purchase
the East Fork Headwaters Tract for $33 million.

“This land is highly desirable for protection and public use, and is truly
multipurpose,” said Gordon Myers, executive director of the Commission.
“The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission supports The Conservation Fund’s
effort to effectuate long-term conservation of this valuable resource.”

The East Fork Headwaters tract is the largest privately owned tract remaining
in far western North Carolina and is home to several waterfalls, 50 miles of
trout streams and nearly 10 miles of the Foothills Trail where it enters North
Carolina. The site contains exceptional recreational opportunities for public
hunting, fishing, hiking and other outdoor pursuits. The land is also
biologically valuable, containing habitats for a number of species listed in
the Wildlife Action Plan.
