2016 Maryland Fall Trout Stocking

posted in: regional | 0

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently began stocking brown, golden, and rainbow trout in select creeks, lakes, and rivers as part of its annual fall trout stocking activities. Approximately 25,000 trout will be stocked by the end of October.

Fall stocking locations include popular fishing areas such as Bear Creek, Big Elk Creek, Blairs Valley Lake, Deer Creek, Great Seneca Creek, Greenbelt Lake, Gunpowder Falls, Lake Artemesia, Morgan Run, North Branch Potomac, Patapsco River, Town Creek, Tuckahoe Creek and Wheatley Lake.

Stocking dates, times, and locations will be chosen based on weather conditions, water flow and temperatures.

Most of these stocked trout weigh between one-half and one pound, but numerous trophy fish, weighing over three pounds, will also be stocked. Some stocked streams have seasonal restrictions so anglers should consult the 2016 Maryland Fishing Guide for all related fishing regulations and restrictions.
