More Fish Go Into Area Lakes

The Division of Natural Resources is stocking more than 5,000 channel catfish in West Virginia lakes. The stocking started Tuesday and the cats will be what the division calls catchable size. The stocking is in addition to more than 34,000 fish added to 28 lakes in March. The program is intended to offer fishing opportunities at DNR wildlife management areas, state parks and municipal fishing holes. Tagged channel catfish will be stocked in eight state parks. Anglers who snag one of those fish are asked to return the tag or tag number to the Division. In return, that person will receive a free night of camping.
