FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky fish and wildlife officials are adding to the trout population of lakes around the state.
The plan is to stock more than 31,000 rainbow trout measuring at least 9 inches long in 26 lakes this week.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said the largest stocking will be at Cedar Creek Lake in Lincoln County. Workers will divide 9,000 trout among locations at each of the lake's three ramps.
Jacobson Park Lake in Fayette County is receiving 4,000 trout. That lake recently joined Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's Fishing in Neighborhoods program aimed at providing better fishing opportunities in population centers in the state.
Other areas receiving trout include lakes in Jefferson, Boyle, Franklin, Henderson, Hopkins, Jessamine, Knox, Marion, Meade, Madison, Montgomery, Nelson, Scott and Union counties.
