PENDLETON, S.C. — The Natural Resources Department has added about 280,000 striped bass into Lake Hartwell and officials say they should be worth catching in a couple of years.

The Greenville News says the agency dumped the 1.5-inch fish in the water Friday afternoon. More fish had been dumped in the water Thursday.

The nearly 500,000 fish came from the Dennis Wildlife Center Fish Hatchery in Bonneau.

Fisheries biologist Dan Rankin said the fish grow quickly. Rankin says the heavy rains this year should have boosted nutrients in the lake.

Pickens Rep. Davey Hiott says the fish will be a boost for fishing on the 56,000-acre lake.

Edit

And I'll add to NocNoc's suggestion:

The Natural Resources Department has

ADDED

about 280,000

more

striped bass into Lake Hartwell and officials say they should be worth catching in a couple of years.

Or you could delete the word "more" altogether. It's not necessary.

Let's not stop there...plenty

Let's not stop there...plenty more typos to choose from in this one:

"The Natural Resources Department" - The Department of Natural Resources...

"The Greenville News reported says the agency dumped..." - either 'report', or delete the word 'reported' all together, or change to "reports the agency"

"...came from the Dennis Wildlife Center Fish Hatcher" - Gonna assume it's a hatcherY and not a hatcher.

"...a boost for fishing on the 56,000-acrea lake." - acrea? Really?

Can I get a job writing for the AP?

More succinct

PENDLETON, S.C. — The Greenville Times reported that the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources deposited a total of approximately 500,000 striped bass fingerlings into Lake Hartwell last Thursday and Friday. Fisheries biologist Dan Rankin said the heavy rains this year should have boosted nutrients in the lake and the fish should grow quickly. They should be worth catching in a couple of years. The fish came from the Dennis Wildlife Center Fish Hatchery in Bonneau.

Sean, don't worry about it.

Sean, don't worry about it. We were laughing at work today about 2 separate articles on education in the Aiken Standard having "led" spelled "lead."

I think

You've all missed the main theme of this story. That being fat fish in a couple years that beg to be deep fried.
