DOVER, Del. (AP) - A late winter snowstorm and predicted bitterly cold temperatures have forced Delaware officials to postpone the opening of downstate trout season.

The Division of Fish & Wildlife said in a news release Thursday that Saturday’s scheduled opening of downstate trout season has been postponed a week, to March 14.

Fisheries Administrator John Clark says Tidbury Pond near Dover and Newton Pond near Greenwood can’t be stocked with trout because they are covered with thick ice.

Officials say this is the first time trout season has been delayed since the state began stocking downstate trout ponds in 1993.
