Stocking of trout streams

The annual stocking of trout streams in St. Lawrence County is about to get underway as the traditional spring trout and salmon season starts on April 1.
The earliest stocking in the county is usually in the Oswegatchie River in Piercefield in March, and the schedule shows 1,750 eight- to nine-inch brook trout due to go in this month. In May, the Oswegatchie is due to get 3,500 brown trout introduced in Clifton and Fine.
The stockings are done by the state Department of Environmental Conservation and local volunteers.
