Preseason Trout Stocking Has Begun in Maryland


Found this in my inbox yesterday...

Pre-season trout stocking has begun. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) began releasing rainbow and brown trout in streams and lakes across the State. The stocking dates and locations are dependent on stream, ground and weather conditions.

 (We do not list sites that are closed at time of stocking.)

The DNR trout stocking program is funded entirely by the sale of nontidal fishing licenses, trout stamps and Federal Sportfish Restoration Program (Wallop-Breaux) funds which are generated by a special excise tax on boating and angling equipment.
