Stocking

Warren County Fish Hatchery employee Kendall Converse introduces a net-full of brook trout to their new home in English Brook in Lake George on April 21, 2014. 

A number of local streams and ponds will get their first stockings of trout starting later this week.

Both the state Department of Environmental Conservation and Warren County hatchery crews will begin their annual spring stocking programs as early as Wednesday.

Warren County Parks and Recreation Director Tim Benway said his staff plans to start putting trout in the county's southern waters by the end of the week, possibly as early as Wednesday, with Hovey Pond, Crandall Park Pond and Halfway Brook to be targeted first.

"We've been monitoring the (water) temperatures the last couple of days and they are close," he said.

A time frame for northern waters was to be determined, based on the weather of the next week or so.

DEC crews hope to start later this week with the Dwaas Kill, Kayaderosseras Creek, and Snook Kill in Saratoga County, and in Washington County, the West Branch of Black Creek, Whipple Brook, Black Creek, White Creek and Owl Kill.
