Spring Catchable Trout Stocking Update

Each spring the Department stocks trout of a catchable size in around 40 lakes and ponds throughout the state (many located in towns and cities). These fish range from ½ - 3 pounds, perfect for catching on a lazy spring afternoon. So grab the fishing poles and the family and head out to one of the lakes listed below. Catch them now, because once things warm up in late spring/early summer the trout will stop biting!

Note: We’ll add to this list as more lakes are stocked throughout the next month.
