2015 MA Fall Trout Stocking Underway


This fall (2015) 74,100 trout, comprised of 66,100 rainbow trout and 8,000 brown trout, will be stocked in Massachusetts water bodies by the state’s Division of Fisheries & Wildlife. The fish from McLaughlin, Montague, Sandwich, and Sunderland hatcheries range in size from about 12” to more than 14”. Trout have been allocated equally to each of the five MassWildlife Districts.

Due to the short stocking season, fall stocking activity is not posted on the website’s stocking schedule. See Trout Stocked Waters for a list of Massachusetts waters that are usually stocked in the fall. Contact local DFW office for more information.
