EBCI Fisheries & Wildlife Management
Regular stocking of the streams is the responsibility of Cherokee Fish and Game Management that each year adds nearly 400,000 trout to an existing population of fish swimming in the crystal clear mountain waters. These supplemental stockings include rainbow, brook and brown trout of various sizes ranging up to trophy size. A $7.00 tribal permit for each person 12 years of age and over is required to fish in Cherokee streams and ponds. Children under twelve are allowed to fish with a permitted adult. Two, three, and five-day permits are available at a reduced rate and a season's permit costs $150.00. No other type of fishing license is required nor accepted on the reservation. Nearly two dozen businesses in Cherokee are authorized outlets for fishing permits.
