Fishing WisconsinCatchable trout stocking 2014

catchable trout - brook trout

Catchable-size trout provide angling opportunities.

About 320,000 catchable rainbow, brown, and brook trout (167,000, 60,000 and 90,000, respectively) will be delivered to waters statewide before the First Saturday in May inland opener. The fish are raised at Nevin Fish Hatchery, Osceola Fish Hatchery and St. Croix Falls Hatchery. Additional fish were raised and stocked through cooperative rearing agreements with fishing clubs, and about 70,000 fish will be stocked in urban fishing waters, small lakes and ponds cooperatively managed with the local municipality and used as a place for fishing clinics and kids fishing.
