1,200 trout from Wyoming stocked in ND waters

BISMARCK — North Dakota Game and Fish Department personnel recently stocked six lakes with about 1,200 trout from Wyoming.

Rainbow trout were stocked in Camels Hump Lake in Golden Valley County, Dickinson Dike in Stark County, North Woodhaven Pond in Cass County and Mooreton Pond in Richland County.

Cutthroat trout were split between Northgate Dam in Burke County and Kettle Lake in Williams County.

The fish weigh between 2 pounds and 5 pounds.

Game and Fish fisheries official Jerry Weigel says Wyoming provides trout each year in exchange for walleye fingerlings.

Normal rainbow trout stockings from Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery have been delayed due to the late spring, but Game and Fish says nearly 50,000 10-inch rainbow trout will be stocked into 50 waters statewide by May 23.
