>> WHITE CLAY CREEK (Oct. 16, 2014) – The Fisheries Section of the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today that White Clay Creek has received its annual fall stocking of trout. Fall stockings have occurred at White Clay Creek since 2007. DNREC Fisheries staff, along with volunteer help, stocked about 1,000 pounds of rainbow trout throughout White Clay Creek at all normal stocking locations from near the border with Pennsylvania downstream to Newark. Volunteers used float boxes to carry about 800 fish weighing about 1.25 pounds each from the truck access points along White Clay Creek, which offers the most public access of any Delaware trout stream.
“The fish looked great! Most were between 12 and 14 inches, and they were all healthy, just a premium stocking of fish,” said Fisheries staff member Mark Zimmerman, who heads up the trout stocking efforts.
>> The recreational black sea bass season has reopened and will remain open until the end of the year.
