BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State wildlife officials have stocked a fresh supply of trout in almost 40 North Dakota fisheries.

Jerry Weigel with the state Game and Fish Department says the effort puts catchable fish in waters that are more accessible to young people, older adults and disabled anglers. Many of the fisheries have piers.

Weigel says trout bite aggressively in the spring and are easier for kids to catch.

More than 20,000 11-inch rainbow trout were stocked, along with 800 1- to 2-pound cutthroat trout.
