Trout, catfish stocking update for northern Kentucky

Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56/AP) — The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said crews will soon begin stocking a northern Kentucky lake with trout and catfish.

The move comes as the Robert J. Barth Lake in Campbell County was added to the agency’s Fishing in Neighborhoods program that stocks lakes in park-like settings near communities.

Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Fish says on their website, “Most fish populations are very good at maintaining themselves, but sometimes they need a bit of assistance from managers to reach their potential.”

The agency said in a statement that the lake in Cold Spring is scheduled to receive its first stocking of rainbow trout on Nov. 16. More trout will be added in February and March. Catfish will be added in March, April, May and June. In addition, bass and sunfish will be stocked as needed.
