I am new to NANFA, as well as fish collecting. I've become pretty interested in native fish and am excited to get out collecting. I was hoping to get some tips or directions on how to do this.
I live in Indiana, but want to collect in South Carolina where I have family to visit (near NC border). I'm looking for any species of shiner, darter, etc. Any input would be appreciated.
- Is a permit required in SC or NC?
- Do you simply find a public stream or lake and get in?
- Any known good spots for shiners in SC?
- What time of year can I start looking for shiners in SC?
- any other tips.
Thank you for your time,
