It's raining here today but...

According to the USGS North Carolina is in the midst of a drought. Stream flows in the Old North State are at record lows that rival the records set in the 1998-2002 drought. This coupled with recent hot temperatures are causing some area fishermen to tie flies rather than attempt to catch already stressed summer trout.

Conditions across the state range from "abnormally dry" in northeastern North Carolina to "extreme drought" in the southwestern mountains of the state, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
