Because of increased turbidity and lower survival rates downstream of the dredging by the town of North Wilksboro, trout stockings in the Reddies River have been postponed until the dredging is completed.
RALEIGH, N.C. – The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has postponed the November delayed-harvest trout stocking for Reddies River in Wilkes County.

The current water quality conditions in the river could impact the survival of stocked fish.

The portion of Reddies River downstream of the city’s water supply reservoir was added to the Commission’s Delayed Harvest Trout Waters Program in July 2008.  The river was stocked with more than 1,000 trout in October and additional trout stockings were scheduled for November 2008, and March, April and May 2009.

In early October, North Wilkesboro informed the Commission that the city would begin dredging operations in the reservoir upstream of the delayed-harvest section.  The ongoing dredging has resulted in increased turbidity in the river to levels that could result in reduced survival of stocked trout.

The City of North Wilkesboro expects the dredging to take up to nine months to complete.   Additional stockings planned for the delayed-harvest portion of Reddies River during March, April, and May 2009 may also be postponed.  Fish stocking will resume once river conditions improve.

“We regret the unexpected temporary loss of this trout fishing opportunity,” said Mallory Martin, regional supervisor with the Commission’s Division of Inland Fisheries. “However, several other delayed-harvest trout waters are within an hour’s drive of Reddies River.  Nearby high quality fishing opportunities include the East Prong Roaring River in Wilkes County, Mitchell River in Surry County, Helton Creek and Trout Lake in Ashe County, and Watauga River in Watauga County.”
