Description
Incorporated in 1897, Roanoke Rapids grew up along the banks of the mighty Roanoke River. The river rapids are the result of the fall line, a granite shelf running the entire length of the East Coast. In the early 19th century, when the country's economy depended in large part on the transportation of goods from eastern seaports to points west, a canal was built to facilitate river commerce.
Today Roanoke Rapids is a popular fishing destination and is often called the “rockfish capital of the world.” From mid-March to early June the Roanoke River is packed with rockfish, or striped bass, as the fish travel upriver to their spawning grounds.
