Trout in the Classroom: Annual Trout Stocking Event

Union Elementary and Hodgesville Elementary joined  Rock Cave and Hacker Valley Elementary for the annual stocking of trout they have been growing since October. This program was launched about 8 years ago in Upshur county thanks to a partnership with Trout Unlimited, WV Fish and Wildlife, Williams Energy, DEP and WVU Extension. Holly River State Park has hosted this event for several years and were gracious hosts again this year.  Students participated in educational stations provided by our sponsors and were able to stock both fingerlings and catchable size trout.
