2015 Maryland Trout Stocking

posted in: regional | 0

Maryland Department of Natural Resources fisheries biologists will begin stocking rainbow and brown trout in early February, depending on stream, ground and weather conditions. By the start of summer, more than 337,000 trout will have been released in about 130 streams and lakes statewide.

The stocking schedule, trout regulations, an online trout stocking map, interactive access map and other information is available online. Maryland trout fishing information is also available at DNR regional service centers and license vendors throughout the state.

Anglers who catch and register a trout that meets or exceeds the Angler Award minimum sizes – 20 inches for a Rainbow and 21 inches for a Brown – will earn a certificate, a free pass to the Maryland Seafood Festival, and the chance to win great prizes at the 2015 Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale in September.
