PHOTOS: Casting a line in Clendenin

Dozens of anxious anglers were on hand as approximately 1,000 pounds of trout were released into the Elk River, in Clendenin, Saturday morning.

The stocking, which consisted mostly of rainbow trout, was sponsored by the Kanawha County Commission with the hopes of giving the town, which was ravaged by the June 2016 flood, a boost to its economy.

The fish, which weighed in the 1- to 4-pound range, were provided by a private hatchery in Mercer County.
