Delaware streams will get extra, bigger fish

    Those of you who went fishing in Delaware’s waterways on opening day might want to hold off casting again for later this month. Today the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced trophy-sized fish will be added to some streams.

    In honor of the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s 100th anniversary, an extra 100 trophy-sized trout will be added to stocking locations later this month. The rainbow, brook, brown, tiger and golden trout will all weigh more than 2 lbs, with some weighing as much as 6 lbs., measuring up to two feet long.

    April 28 is the last scheduled stocking date for the season.
