Improved Trout Stocking Report Provides More Options for Anglers

Massachusetts anglers can go to mass.gov/trout to view a list or a map displaying trout stocking information, which is updated daily during the stocking seasons!

Anglers seeking stocking reports for a particular water body or town should use the table to locate information. Type the name of the water body or town into the search window to find all stocking reports for that location. The table also allows users to sort by town, water body, stocking date, type of fish, or district. Note: All districts are now displayed on the same table.

The new map component of the stocking report allows users to zoom and pan to regions of the state and discover new destinations for fishing. The default map view shows trout-stocked waters for the entire state. Zoom to the area you would like to explore and then click on any thumbtack icon to view the dates and types of trout that have been stocked at that location. Stocking locations on streams are accurate, but fish swim, so be sure to investigate other reaches of the stream as well.

The stocking report is still subject to change depending on staffing, equipment, and weather conditions.

Don’t forget your fishing license — available online at mass.gov/massfishhunt at MassWildlife offices, or at license vendors.
