It's time for anglers in the Montrose-Delta area to get fired up for spring fishing. Colorado Parks and Wildlife has stocked more than 1,000 lunkers in the area. CPW stocked cutthroat trout averaging 17 inches at fishing spots that are easily accessible. At Confluence Lake in Delta, CPW stocked about 350 fish. At Ridgway State Park more than 700 of the fish have been stocked in the Uncompahgre River tailwater, and in Pericles Pond and Shavano Pond, all in the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk area.

"Stocking these fish really gives anglers a chance to feel what it's like to catch a nice big trout," said Joe Lewandowski, spokesperson for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Anglers are also reminded that they need to get their 2018 Colorado fishing license by April 1. Licenses can be purchased at local vendors or online at http://cpw.state.co.us/. For more information, call the CPW Montrose wildlife office at 970-252-6000.
