Most if not all of the streams in "the Gorge" are stocked in October and catch and release till May. BUT this year I am fairly sure they were not stocked in October- The rumor I heard has it that the hatchery at Wolf Creek Dam released into the Cumberland rather than hold them due to water temp problems. I spent a weekend in early November scouting and found no trout had been stocked in the Gorge at that time. You might check with the folks in Frankfort as to updates. Trout have a very hard time surviving the low water and high temps found in the summer. Chimmey top and Parched Corn might be the only natural reporducing streams there.
