Last year, the fall trout stocking was moved back a week till the 3rd week of October. Anyone heard what the plans are for this year? We’re trying to plan a trip.

It said the same last year, but they still moved it back a week due to low water and high temps. Just wondered if they’re considering the same this year.

There's no water to dump them into. They'd be knocked out hitting the stream bed

I was in Cabela's yesterday and overheard a conversation that the stocking may be moved to the first week in Nov.

In remember in the early 90's when it was this dry, all the fall stockings went into the Lakes, and streams were skipped over.

Places like Summit Lake, Spruce Knob Lake, Seneca Lake, and Buffalo Lake got all the fish, along with the Summersville Tailwaters.

I am pretty sure we are headed that way again.

Conditions are horrible out there.

And I am very concerned about our wild fish.  We are no doubt losing wild fish in places.  Please leave them alone until the water returns.

Just checked some of the river gages I tend to keep an eye on.

Elk River @ Webster Springs has been steady at 10-12 cfs.  It hasn't been over 20 cfs for the last two weeks.  Median flow for this time of year is 150-200 cfs.

Cheat River @ Parsons for the same time period has been running at 50-70 cfs.  Median flow for this time of year is 200-300 cfs.

For September, we've had about 10 percent of the average monthly rainfall.  Some areas in NCWV got a little rain this morning, but probably not enough to have a large impact.
