Cutthroat Stockings

A couple of weeks ago I gave a “heads-up” that we were finally getting some cutthroat trout stocked in Nebraska waters again.  Many anglers have been looking hard for a cutthroat to complete their Trout Slam.  At that time, the first of those stockings was made in the White River southwest of Ft. Robinson.  We have stocked a few more thousand of those fish since then, here is the complete list:

White River 1,000
Wood Reserve Ponds 600
Middle Fork Soldiers Creek 400
Grove WMA Pond 50
Alliance Golf Course Pond 400
Chadron State Park Pond 500
Carter P. Johnson 1,000
Bridgeport SRA Middle Pit  2,000

The fish stocked in the White River were stocked the last week in August; all the rest have been stocked in the past two weeks.  I know that many of you have been aware of these stockings already because I have received several Trout Slam entries in the past couple of weeks.  I expect even more to come, and fall is a great time to catch ’em!
