MARION, N.C. (May 3, 2013) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has postponed a trout stocking scheduled for today into the Delayed Harvest section of the Nantahala River in Macon County. Commission staff had planned to stock in the Nantahala 3,300 trout today — 1,320 brook, 1,320 rainbow and 660 brown trout — but postponed the stocking due to equipment malfunction. Other trout stockings scheduled for today are being conducted as planned.
The postponed trout stocking for the Nantahala River has been rescheduled to May 7.
The Nantahala River is part of the Wildlife Commission’s Delayed Harvest Trout Waters Program.
