State Stocking 3-4-15

The state brought about 200 rainbows and browns to the Ridley fly stretch today. Ed Collier, John Ritterson and I were on hand to help with the stocking. Also present were Officer Evancho, Phil Ewaka and a few helpers. Prior to the truck arrival, John used Ed's sledge hammer to open a hole in the 5" ice in the middle of the bridge pool. All fish were introduced to Ridley Creek through that hole. Slippery conditions all along the banks, and ice, prevented putting fish anywhere else.

The ice cannot last forever. When it's gone, I wish you tight lines.

2014 Chapter Stocking
 
The DMTU Chapter stocking took place on Saturday, 11/8/14. We began below the mud hole and stocked down to Dismal Run. Green Spring Trout Farm delivered 200 browns in the 10" - 11" size and 10 rainbows in the 17" - 18" size. Some fish were bucketed to the mud hole and the sycamore hole. The rest were distributed throughout the lower fly stretch. We are thankful to The Sporting Gentleman for their contribution to purchase the larger fish. Also, many thanks to the Ray Neirle South Jersey Chapter for a generous donation to this stocking event.

We had a good turnout of volunteers that included: Steve Capoferrie, Sergio Dacol, Dan Foley, Rich Hall (Ray Neirle SJ Chapter), Bob Heindel (Ray Neirle SJ Chapter), Tom Millio, Rich Mooney, Jimmey Nickerson, Chuck Pulsfort, Tom Scheurman, Greg Shaffer & Dave Wharton. My apologies to anyone I may have missed.
