Summersville Lake tailwater trout stocking

SUMMERSVILLE, West Virginia – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, in cooperation with the West Virginia Professional Outfitters Association (WVPRO), stocked 750 pounds of rainbow trout in the Summersville Dam tailwater of the Gauley River June 27, 2014.

"The goal of the stocking is to enhance summer trout fishing opportunities in the Gauley River," said Frank Jezioro, DNR Director.  "Another stocking will be conducted in August."

The program is supported by rafting fees to compensate for additional days of whitewater rafting flows on the Gauley River. Fishing opportunities are reduced during these high flows released from Summersville Dam.
