16,000 New South Carolina Residents

South Carolina Natural Resources officials have used a helicopter to stock the Saluda River with 16,000 trout. Trout are not native to that area but can survive their because the Saluda is a tail water that flows from the dam at Lake Murray which is located near Columbia. This is another good example of a state that wouldn't normally have trout making the most of that cold water coming out of the bottom of a hydroelectric dam.
