TU-Cataloochee’s next trout stocking event is coming up Monday, May 6, along the delayed harvest section of the West Fork of the Pigeon River. 

Anyone interested can meet at the West Fork upper parking lot at 10:30 a.m.. Bring a 5-gallon bucket or two along with some friends. Waders are recommended but not required. A minimum of 25 volunteers is needed, and the public is invited. The stocking takes about three hours. Kids are welcome.
