Fishing around for fun

More than 300 children participated in a Fish for Fun event at Lake Wilma in this file photo from 2013.

Anglers who had hoped to fish for trout at Lake Wilma in Greene County will be out of luck this season.

The lake, which is owned by the energy company CNX Resources, is being temporarily closed due to “ongoing operations,” according to spokesman Brian Aiello. This means that trout stocking operations that had been planned for Thursday and for April 12 at Lake Wilma have been called off. The lake, located in Wayne Township, will also be closed for Mentored Youth Trout Day next Saturday, and on April 1, the opening of trout season.
