DEEP: Trout Stocking Maps

Trout Stocking Maps for Rivers and Streams
NEW! Connecticut DEEP Interactive Trout Stocking Map 
Anglers interested in trout stocking information can make use of a new interactive map.  The new map allows users to search by a town or waterbody, pan and zoom, or use pre-defined searches to inform anglers when the water was last stocked (days since last stocking) and to discover new destinations for fishing.  In addition, rivers or streams may have a link to a map of trout stocking points, while lakes and ponds may have a link to the depth map (bathymetric).

The purpose of this interactive map is to provide the angling community with near real-time information on stocked waters (the number of days since the most recent stocking event) and improved locational information about Connecticut’s trout stocked waters.

Anglers will have several options including where to find the waters that were stocked within the past day, week or month.  There are several categorical searches including, all rivers/streams or lakes/ponds, trout management areas, community fishing waters, and trout parks.

CT DEEP will be stocking over 530,000 catchable size trout (average size of 12 inches) into Connecticut’s lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams this spring (before Opening Day and until mid-May). This number is about 90,000 less fish than the number stocked last year, which will bring some changes to our stocking program. For more information about these changes and the list of areas that will not be stocked in 2017, please see the 2017 Trout Stocking Plan.
Maps showing many of the river and stream locations where trout are stocked are available for Eastern and Western Connecticut.  Springtime trout distribution generally begins in early March and continues through the end of May. More than half the year’s trout are stocked prior to Opening Day.  
For a complete list of locations and numbers of all fish species stocked last year, please see the Annual Fish Distribution Report
