When it comes to trout, it’s time to go fish.
The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources started its two-week restocking program Monday for West Virginia’s trout streams.
Wildlife Resources Chief Curtis Taylor said 39,000 pounds of trout will be put in 25 streams and eight lakes. About 20 percent of the total will be brood trout. Taylor said that stream flows in many areas are lower than last year, but the fish should still be able to spread out fairly well.
But without more rain, stream flows are likely to be low and clear. Taylor said that means anglers will need all their skill to succeed. New Creek Dam 14 won't be stocked this fall because of ongoing repairs that required drainage. Taylor said it should be refilled for the 2013 stocking season.
