Trout stocking schedules can usually be found on the website for the fish or wildlife department of the states that allow trout fishing. Schedules may be listed by region of the state or by separate areas in which trout are stocked.
Trout stocking refers to the release of fish that have been raised in a hatchery. Once released into the wild, these trout can be fished by sport fisherman as long as catches are within legal limits for the area in question. Trout are stocked in numbers geared to promote sustainability, meaning that stocking creates populations in the wild that are able to breed without human intervention.
