CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A thousand pounds of rainbow trout will be released into streams in West Virginia this week.

The Kanawha County Commission and Indian Lake Fish Hatchery will release the fish into the Elk River and Blue Creek on Friday.

“We are proud to continue the tradition of enriching the lives of our citizens through outdoor recreation in Kanawha County,” commission president Kent Carper said. “The pandemic has reminded all of us of the importance of having fun and safe outdoor activities for our communities to enjoy.”

The release will complete the second trout stocking for the year and the final stock for 2021.
