The stream levels and temperatures at the locations to be planted were not good and the fish could not be "held" till later.(again unofficial).

Thanks for the clarification. I don't know why I was thinking that everything got stocked. Now that you mentioned it, seems like I remember reading a press release from KDFWR that they did over stock the Cumberland to avoid die off at the hatchery.
