 WVPRO Sponsors 16th Annual Trout Stocking October 25

In Summersville Tailwaters

  The West Virginia Professional River Outfitters Association (WVPRO) will stock 3,000 pounds of brook and rainbow trout in a remote four-mile section of the Gauley River on Tuesday, October 25. The stocking will begin at 11 a.m. at the Summersville dam.


  “The goal is not only to enhance the fall trout fishing opportunities for anglers, but also to provide holdover fish in the river between Summersville Dam and the Meadow River into the winter and spring months,” said Doug Proctor of WVPRO and Class VI River Runners. Each year Gauley River whitewater outfitters arrange for the fall trout stocking to extend fishing opportunities following the fall whitewater rafing season.


  “The Division of Natural Resources is happy to partner with WVPRO in a program that benefits anglers,” said DNR Director Frank Jezioro.
