CHARLESTON, WV—Approximately 35,000 pounds of trout will be stocked Oct. 11-17 in 26 West Virginia streams and nine lakes as the state's Division of Natural Resources' begins its 2005 fall trout stocking program. "Although stream flows are extremely low, all waters will be stocked with trout as scheduled," says Mike Shingleton of the DNR Wildlife Resources Section. "Because of the low, clear flows, anglers will have to use their best angling skills to be successful." Anglers should be aware that the Williams River Road in the Monongahela National Forest is closed in the Three Forks area. Those wishing to fish upstream of the road closure should use the Scenic Hwy, Rt. 155, for access. Call the Fisherman's Hotline, (304)558-3399, to find out which streams and lakes have been stocked each day.
