posted in: regional | 0

According to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries Service, fall trout stocking in Maryland could begin as early as the second week of October.

According to biologists, stocking dates and locations are dependent on water flow, temperatures, and ground conditions at local ponds, creeks and rivers.

DNR expects to stock about 26,000 one-pound rainbow and golden trout, 1,000 one-pound brown trout, and 150 two- to three-pound rainbow and golden trout throughout the State.

Trout will be stocked in a number of locations which may include the North Branch of the Potomac River, Bear Creek, Big Elk Creek, Blair’s Valley Lake, Deer Creek, Great Seneca Creek, Greenbelt Lake, Gunpowder Falls, Lake Artemesia, Morgan Run, Patapsco River, Wheatley Lake, Town Creek and Tuckahoe Creek.

Fall trout stocking information will be available on the DNR Fisheries website and on the recorded DNR Trout Hotline (800-688-3467, press 2).
