Dunloup Creek Stocking - August 1, 2015
When: August 1, 2015 - 9:30 AM
Where: Glen Jean Bank
Who: Mike Sayre, Coordinator
PLEASE, COME OUT! THE STOCKING WORKS BEST WITH AT LEAST 35 to 40 PARTICIPANTS. WE EXPECT TO FINISH BY AROUND NOON AND THEN GO FISHING.
WE WILL MEET IN GLEN JEAN, FAYETTE COUNTY, NEAR THE POST OFFICE. SEE DIRECTIONS BELOW. IT TAKES ABOUT ONE HOUR TO REACH GLEN JEAN FROM THE I-64/77/79 SPLIT IN CHARLESTON.
BRING WADERS, LUNCH, AND FISHING GEAR. WE DO GET INTO THE STREAM FOR MUCH OF THE STOCKING, HOWEVER, WE USE THE SPOT STOCKING TECHNIQUE MOSTLY. THIS IS A GREAT STOCKING FOR THE "1ST TIME PARTICIPANT".
WE DO NOT STOP THE STOCKING BECAUSE OF WEATHER. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A RIDE OR HAVE QUESTIONS, GET HOLD OF ME. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FISHING AND NEW TO THE AREA, LET ME KNOW.
WE DO HAVE FUN!
Mike Sayre, Event Coordinator
* SAVE THIS DATE: August 22, 2015 - Loop Creek Stocking. Needs you there!
DIRECTIONS TO DUNLOUP CREEK
Take the Turnpike south to Mossy, however to save a toll, get off I 79 at Chelyan and go up Cabin Creek to Sharon and get back on the Turnpike. This short detour costs you 5 minutes. From Mossy follow Rt 612 about 7 miles to Whipple. Turn right at Whipple and travel about 3 miles to Glen Jean. You will cross under U.S. 19 just before you get there. Cross through the intersection, go over Dunloup Creek, and you are in Glen Jean.
We meet for the stocking near the PO and Park HQ. Route 25 follows Dunloup Creek from Glen Jean to Thurmond on the New River.
Use US 19 coming from other directions. Get off at the Glen Jean/ New River Gorge National River exits between Oak Hill and Mount Hope. Coming from the north use the last Oak Hill exit, a left turn and be careful.
We encourage car pooling so find a friend to share the ride!
