Summersville Lake tailwater trout stocking

SUMMERSVILLE, West Virginia – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with the West Virginia Professional Outfitters Association (WVPRO), will stock 750 pounds of rainbow trout in the Summersville Dam tailwater of the Gauley River during the week of Aug. 25, 2014. The goal of the stocking is to enhance late summer trout fishing opportunities in the Gauley River, according to DNR Director Frank Jezioro.

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