|Attention Anglers! Douthat Lake and Wilson Creek Fee Area StockingThe Douthat Lake and Wilson Creek Fee Area in Bath County will not be stocked on September 15, 2023. Current water temperatures in both the lake and the stream are ranging from 74 degrees to 77 degrees Fahrenheit, which is too warm for trout to survive. DWR hatchery staff will be checking water temperatures diligently over the coming days. Once the daytime water temperatures return to an acceptable level, stocking will commence as originally planned. For the latest information on this matter, stay tuned to our social media channels and the Daily Stocked Trout Schedule on our website.|
