Details

Tucked between the eastern portions of the Neuse and Cape Fear river basins, the White Oak River Basin abounds with coastal and freshwater wetlands. The basin includes four river systems, or subbasins, that feed into highly productive estuaries of Back, Core and Bogue sounds. Core Sound produces the most valuable seafood catch in the basin, followed by Bogue Sound and the Newport River.
