Mr. Coffin said that fishing tn

re-stocking program all point to
good fishing in Pisgah streams.
The Pisgah streams were origi
nally scheduled to open on May
6-7, but state officials urged , that
they be opened April 1 5th along
with state streams. The dry forests
and danger of fires, has this far
prevented the opening of the nat
