The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has postponed two trout stockings scheduled today for the Delayed Harvest sections of the Little River in Alleghany County and Big Horse Creek in Ashe County. Commission staff had planned to stock 1,500 trout in Little River and 1,675 trout in Big Horse Creek, but postponed due to flood conditions in the region.

Both postponed trout stockings will be rescheduled after the flood recedes.

The Little River and Big Horse Creek are part of the Wildlife Commission's Delayed Harvest Trout Waters Program.
