RENO, Nev. ” With spring around the corner, the Nevada Department of Wildlife getting ready the first of tens of thousands of fish in the Truckee River.

About 70,000 cutthroat and rainbow trout raised in hatcheries are planted in the river each year.

The first stocking of the Truckee is scheduled for Thursday.

NDOW spokesman Chris Healy says stocking in other urban areas like Sparks Marina began in late February.

But officials caution that if you’re going to go fishing, you better have an updated license and trout stamp.

An annual, resident license for those over 16 costs $29. A trout stamp is an additional $10.

Juniors and seniors can get a license for $13, plus the trout stamp.
