ANNAPOLIS Low water levels will prevent Maryland state fishery managers from stocking trout in six locations before the season opens on March 30, the Department of Natural Resources said yesterday.
The affected waterways are North Jennings Run and Fifteen Mile Creek in Allegany County; Owens Creek, Fishing Creek and Hamburg Pond in Frederick County; and Lower Gunpowder Falls downstream of Loch Raven Dam in Baltimore County.
Trout that would have been stocked in those locations will be placed instead in nearby lakes and ponds that have enough water to sustain the fish, the agency said.
Ten other streams will be stocked with fewer trout than planned due to low water levels, the DNR said.
The changes affect only the first round of scheduled stocking. Fisheries biologists may make further adjustments to the published stocking schedule, depending on stream levels, the agency said.
