Mountain Trout This Week 2/7/11-2/13/11
The cold temperatures continue, but there is some relief in sight next week. The WVDNR has started stocking some of the smaller monthly and bi-weekly streams. These smaller waters are my favorites. Red Creek, Clover Run and Horseshoe Run in Tucker County were stocked this week. The Right Fork of Middle Fork in Upshur and the Tygart River headwater section also received trout. I came down the Tygart yesterday, the river was low and clear, with shelf ice extending from the banks and a lot of floating ice sheets. For the complete list of waters stocked this week go to WV Trout Back Creek over in Bath County was stocked this week, as was the South Branch of the Potomac in Highland County; for the complete list of Virginia trout stockings, go to VA Trout The cold morning temperatures that we have had in our region over the past week make mid-afternoon the time to be on your favorite stream.
