Catfish Stocking

April, May, June, September and October

Thousands of pounds of 13- to 15-inch channel catfish are stocked periodically at all Community Fishing Destinations from March through October.

Trout Stocking


More than 50,000 catchable-sized rainbow trout are stocked each winter from November through February across the state in Family and Community Fishing Program destinations. While most trout average just under a pound, a few 2-5 pounders are stocked each year.
