SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia wildlife officials say changes are in store for the 2016 trout stocking season, which begins Monday.
Seven streams and one pond have been removed from the schedule for various reasons, including small size and limited fisherman access.
The streams include Deer Creek in Nicholas County, Long Marsh run in Jefferson County, Lower Cove Run in Hardy County, Mill Run of Back Creek in Berkeley County, both the north and south forks of Fishing Creek in Wetzel County, and the south fork of Potts Creek in Monroe County. The smaller of the two Larenim Park lakes also was removed.
Buffalo Creek in Clay County has been added to the schedule.
