The natural reproduction is able to sustain the fishery in the Connecticut (including the Oxbow), Concord, Sudbury, and Housatonic (including Woods Pond) Rivers and in Pontoosuc, Onota, Buel, Cheshire, Indian, and Wequaquet Lakes.
Tiger Muskellunge is a cross between a northern pike and muskellunge, and are sterile.
MassWildlife stocks some locations with Northern Pike and Tiger Muskellunge, which are members of the esocid family. MassWildlife does not have a warm water hatchery in which to rear esocids but usually obtains a small number of 3–12 " fish each year from the New Jersey Division of Fisheries and Wildlife through a cooperative exchange program. They are stocked in selected Massachusetts waters with sufficient habitat to support them. It takes 5 or more years for them to attain the 28" minimum legal length. Stocking information is listed in the tables below.
