The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ April trout stocking schedule includes Floyds Fork in Jefferson County and Otter Creek in Meade County. The complete stocking list for the month is at www.fw.ky.gov.
The department plans to stock 1,200 rainbow trout in Floyds Fork on Tuesday and 1,250 in Otter Creek on April 10.
Floyds Fork is being managed as a put-grow-take seasonal trout fishery, because summer water temperatures will almost certainly be too high for trout to survive year-round. Anglers plying that creek are encouraged to keep their fish (a trout stamp is required in addition to a fishing license). The daily limit is eight.
Anglers can access the trout-holding section of Floyds Fork at Miles Park, which is one of two stocking sites. The other is downstream near the I-64 bridge.
Parkland director Scott Martin said the best access to the trout waters is the six-mile float from Miles Park Lake to the Fisherville access.
