The Michigan Department of Natural Resources recently stocked adult trout in the Clinton River at Riverside Park, Huron River at Proud Lake Recreation Area, and Spring Mill Pond at Island Lake Recreation Area.
The Clinton River was stocked with just over 900 brown trout from 11 to 15 inches and 150 rainbow trout ranging from 20 to 22 inches. The Huron River was stocked with 1,800 brown trout sized 11 to 21 inches and nearly 1,200 rainbow trout sized 15 to 21 inches. Spring Mill Pond was stocked with nearly 350 brown trout sized 11 to 21 inches and nearly 600 rainbow trout sized 15 to 21 inches.
This annual stocking activity uses unneeded brown and rainbow trout broodstock from Michigan’s state fish hatcheries. Every year there are some surplus adult trout in the hatchery system, which are stocked in special regulation areas.
See the 2016-2017 Michigan Fishing Guide for complete regulation details.
