Hunting and Fishing

 

The Currituck Sound has long been called a “Sportsman’s Paradise.” Since the early 19th century, shooters from all along the East Coast have flocked to the area along with the yearly migrations of ducks, geese, and swans. The Currituck Sound, a shallow, grassy body of brackish water stretching 35 miles long and 4 to 15 miles wide, still supports a variety of waterfowl, though not in the astounding numbers it did in the past. It also supports healthy populations of fish and crabs. Families love to crab from docks in the sound, and anglers can be seen fishing from boats on the sound. Surf fishing at the ocean is also popular. Guides for fishing and hunting are available. Licenses are required for both freshwater fishing in the Currituck Sound and saltwater fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. (Children younger than 16 do not need a license.) They can be obtained at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education in Corolla, via www.ncwildlife.org or by calling (888) 248-6834. To obtain an application for hunting blinds or for the hunting regulations of Currituck County, contact Cindy Scott, Clerk to the Currituck County Game Commission, (252) 429-3472 or visit www.currituckgamecommission.

Watersports and Other Outdoor Activities

 

The opportunities for outdoor activity are incredible in Currituck County, and fun isn’t limited to the beach or golf course. The Currituck Sound supports numerous activities: kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, and boating. The shallow sound makes it easy to learn sports like windsurfing, but it requires that motor boats and sailboats have a very shallow draft. Kayak eco-tours and parasailing are offered on the Currituck Outer Banks.

Off-the-water activities include bird-watching, hiking, off-road driving, and biking. Of interest to birders and wildlife enthusiasts are an Audubon Sanctuary at Pine Island, the 4WD area north of Corolla, and the Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge at Knotts Island. Biking is great fun on the flatlands of Currituck County, though it’s best to steer clear of the busiest roads during times of heavy summer traffic.
