I just printed something off an NC agency website that is probably the most concise set of regulations I have ever seen about non-game fish collecting and regulations. I plan on keeping that handy with me along with my fishing license. I only wish other states had something like what I found today .

Matt I live in NC and you will have to have a fishing license. I also have a special devices permit just in case I run into a game warden who has a low level of tolerance for dip netters. So far in almost 33 years of collecting I have been stopped twice and never asked for my license. I live more about 5 hours from Greensboro and I am not familiar with eh fish up there either. Have fun, if you ever come down to Wilmington I can show you around here?
