Thanks for the information. It is always heartbreaking when we have a fishkill.
I suppose considering they counted less than 100 fish killed, it is not a catastrophe, it is nonetheless very troubling. I hope the trout upstream can repopulate the section soon and that the negligent parties fully pay for the destruction.
One another note, it always amazes me at how many trout can live in a small stream and in unusual places. I had never heard of Hodges Creek and I have fished in Watuaga county a fair amount.
