  • West Virginia to expand catch and release for native brook trout

    That doesn’t mean, however, that the proposals were any less significant.

    Take, for example, the agency’s suggestion to require catch-and-release fishing for brook trout on more than 130 miles’ worth of streams. To put it in perspective, that would roughly quadruple the trout-stream mileage currently under catch-and-release regulations.

    If approved, the regulations will go into effect Jan. 1, 2019, on the Middle Fork of the Williams River, Tea Creek, Otter Creek, Red Creek and all of those streams’ tributaries. All the affected streams lie within the boundaries of the Monongahela National Forest.
