Trout Stocking in Maryland Resumes for Fall Fishing


Trout Stocking in Maryland Resumes for Fall Fishing September 30, 2020. Hatchery-Raised Trout Bound for Select Creeks, Lakes, Rivers.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will soon begin fall trout stocking. The department anticipates stocking thousands of brown, golden, and rainbow trout in select creeks, lakes, and rivers across the state starting in early October.

Some stocked streams have seasonal restrictions so anglers should consult the 2020-2021 Maryland Guide to Fishing and Crabbing for all regulations and restrictions.

Stocking dates, times, and locations are chosen based on temperatures, water flow, and weather conditions, and as such are not scheduled in advance. Anglers can sign up to receive stocking updates or can call a recorded hotline at 800-688-3467, which is updated every Friday. We also publish stocking information on our website and social media channels.
