Fishing at Cedarock Park

Trout Stocking 2022: The trout are expected to arrive on December 16. The first weekend after the trout are stocked, (December 17-18) fishing will be open to youth ages 15 and under. Trout fishing will open to the public the following Monday, 12/19.

Bank fishing opportunities are available at the park’s two ponds and along Rock Creek. The main pond is stocked with catfish and bream year-round, and trout in the winter months.

You must have a valid NC Fishing License to fish in the park. To support the cost of stocking the ponds, we also require a Cedarock Park Fishing Pass. Daily passes are $5 and annual passes are $35. There is a total catch limit of six fish per day, per pass. The daily catch limit for trout is 4 fish. No catch & release of trout.
