A number of trout are tagged and stocked into selected trout-stocked waters in Massachusetts. The tagged trout are sponsored by a local sportsmen's club, business, or other entity. Any angler who catches a trout with a colored tag will receive a prize from the sponsor. Tags are a different color each year; only tags from the current year will receive a prize. The program ends on October 15 each year.

Below is a list of water bodies and sponsors sorted by district. If you catch a tagged trout from one of these waters, use the information below to contact the sponsor for your prize.

Clubs, businesses, and others interested in becoming a about Tags ‘N Trout sponsor should email MassWildlife at Mass.Wildlife@state.ma.us or call us at (508) 389-6300. It's best to contact us by late February to arrange for participation in the program.
