Park, Friday, April 29, 2013.
The stocking below Colorado Street went
well Thursday morning, with Barry Whitt, Kenny Seagle, Jack Ward and
conservation officer Joe Williams participating.
Ernie put in about 400 to 500 put and
take size fish plus several browns over 5 lbs and 6 rainbow triploids over 5
lbs. Kenny had to perform CPR on one of the rainbow triploids. The prognoses is
for a full recovery.

a record turnout of volunteers and the stocking went very well. Here too a
couple of the big rainbows needed a little help to get going.
Brock said he had loaded up the truck
with a good number big rainbows, several over 5 lbs and more fish altogether.
Spring fishing looks promising this year.

Stocking, Delayed Harvest Section of Roanoke River in Green Hill Park, Friday, Jan 25, 2013. With the temperature at 24 degs, we were getting a little edgy stomping around to keep warm, waiting for Brock and the stocking truck. Fortunately there was no wind and the snow was not supposed to start until noon. Finally, Brock showed up with the truck 45 minutes late. Truck problems. Before each stocking, the stocking truck has to be hosed down and disinfected. Well, this time wiring froze and shorted out and fuses to supply power to the oxygen pump kept blowing. Brock managed to get things going and got the truck over the mountains and to the river. After the long wait the water in the buckets waiting at the first two access points had started to freeze over! With all the volunteer help stocking went over very well and we were done by 10:30. Then it started snowing. Thanks to all the volunteers that braved the cold weather! The participants were Anke Loberg, Hans Loberg, Al Scanlan, Barry Whitt, Bill Bainter, Bob Crawshaw, David Vecellio, Jack Ward, John Loope, Ken Seagle, Ken Yopp, Mike Muse, Rand Bowden, Richard Pitts, Rick Weiss, Roger Delapp, Steve Minnix, Tori Minnix.

Stocking Report - Green Hill Park and Salem Section Wednesday, October 13, 2010
Green Hill Park, Wednesday, Oct 13, 2010 - We had a lower than normal turnout of volunteers due to a number of conflicts. The day started with pouring rain before 9am, but when Andy arrived with the stocking truck the weather was looking up and we tucked away the rain gear. Andy provided us with a nice combination of lively Browns and Rainbows from the Paint Bank hatchery. Many jumped out of the buckets trying to get to the river quicker. The stocking took us about 1hr, 20mins. Then we had to conduct a search and operation in an attempt to find Dick Taylorís missing cellphone. It was eventually found by Anke as we traced our route, repetitively calling Dickís cell phone number. The volunteers consisted of Bob Crawshaw, Hoppy Holsinger, Anke Loberg, Hans Loberg, Richard Pitts and Dick Taylor.
Thanks to all, great job.
Roanoke River - Wednesday, Oct 13, 2010 - A wet start didn't dampen the
spirit and enthusiasm of TUer's and friendly waiting fisherman.
The Colorado section was stocked heavily with nice bows and browns,
more large fish than normal. Karl
Miller saved the day by providing his ATV and trailer to transport our fish
laden buckets to the various stocking points along the Greenway.
We stocked over 1,100 pounds of fish over a two hour period.
Several folks helped for part of the time but as one would leave
another jumped in to help. When
you see Karl please thank him for the use of his machine, without it we would
have been very short handed. Both
the Salem Police and Conservation Police visited and promised to keep a
careful eye on the area. Signs
need to be refreshed in places, a good project for these beautiful fall days
along with matching the hatch for some of the lunkers.

Roanoke River Stocking, Salem Section, Friday, March 12, 2010
We had a great turn out of members and fisherman to help with stocking. Ernie delivered us 1200 brown trout with several in the 2-4 pound range. Marvin suggested to all those waiting fisherman to assist and they sure came through for us. It was really nice having the extra help as we had to carry buckets to the river from the road. Thanks to all those unknown fellow fisherman for their hard work and great help! The TU volunteers consisted of Bayes Wilson, Jon Wilson, Joe Nawrocki, George Kesler, Jack Ward, Marvin Huffman and David Vecellio. We also had some of the fellows come down from Green Hill Park to help us finish up. Even with the water up the fishing proved to be very good for me!!
River Stocking, Green Hill Park, Friday, March 12, 2010.
had a nice turnout of TU volunteers, some veterans and some rookies for the
spring stocking. We started at 9am when Andy arrived
from the Paint Bank hatchery with about 500-600 browns ranging from 9
to 17 inches, nice combination. The weather was overcast, but no rain and
we were done about 10 am. Due to snow melt and some rain the river flow was
close to 600cf/s, too high to distribute the trout towards the opposite bank
like we usually do. The
TU volunteers consisted of Bill Bainter, Dick
Cole, Bob Crawshaw, Bob Jenkins, Anke Loberg, Hans Loberg, Mark McKinney, Dan
Phlegar, Richard Pitts and Wysor Smith. Thanks
to all, great job.

ROANOKE RIVER STOCKING - MONDAY, OCTOBER 16
The Special Regs (Green Hill Park and Colorado St to Apperson) stocking went well, with an ample contingent of Chapter members to assist DGIF personnel in tenderly introducing a number of rainbow, brown, and brook trout to their new homes. Bayes Wilson says that there were a number of BIG brookies included. Click here for write-up by Hans Loberg and pictures by Bayes Wilson.
ROANOKE RIVER STOCKING (MONDAY, MAY 15, 2006) - Twelve Chapter members were on hand to assist DGIF personnel with the last of the spring stockings for the Special Regulations areas of the Roanoke River. The stocking went very smoothly with such a large contingent of TU members. This stocking featured some of the largest fish we have seen since the inception of the Special Regs areas, and included some very large brookies. Click here for some pictures.
As usual, the people working the Green Hill area finished off the activity with a cleanup activity. Many thanks to Hans and Anke Loberg for facilitating that activity.
