Maryland Trout Stocking Schedule May 27 2011

Maryland has stocked fish in sections of the North Branch of the Potomac and the Youghiogheny.

No one in the world not from that area can spell Youghiogheny, and if they could, they couldn’t pronounce it (“yock ah gain ee,” in case you needed that).

Virginia Trout Stocking Schedule May 27 2011

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

The water levels are dropping from muddy and raging to fishable on all the rivers around here. Even the Shenandoah is clearing up, finally. I stopped by Passage Creek last weekend and it was wild. I even saw two whitewater kayakers putting in at Rt. 55, downstream of where the fish are stocked, but they could have easily run the sections upstream. Looks like they just stocked Passage Creek this week, so might be worth checking out.

The fish stocking in Virginia will soon be slowing down for the summertime.
