Trout stocking at Summersville Lake tailwater

SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with the West Virginia Professional Outfitters Association (WVPRO), stocked 600 pounds of rainbow trout in the Summersville Dam tailwater of the Gauley River June 7. 

“The goal of the stocking is to enhance summer trout fishing opportunities in the Gauley River,” said DNR Director Stephen McDaniel.

Rafting fees support the program and compensate for reduced fishing opportunities during days of whitewater rafting flows on the Gauley River.
