Thousands of pounds of trout to be stocked in WV

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of pounds of trout will be added to West Virginia waters this month.

The fall trout stocking is set for the weeks of October 14 and October 21.

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says 32,000 pounds of trout will be stocked in 25 streams and nine lakes.

Brook trout will make up about 20 percent of the 32,000 pounds.

Construction at New Creek Dam 14 in Grant County has been completed and the lake will be stocked with trout this fall.

The division says the U.S. Forest Service has closed an access road and campground at Rock Cliff Lake in Hardy County, and the lake is not expected to be stocked unless the road is reopened during the next two weeks.
