Trout stocking report

Use the map or list below to see locations that have been stocked with trout this spring.

Please practice social distancing, remain 6 feet away from others while fishing. Don't forget your fishing license—buy online at MassFishHunt.

How it works

If you are looking for stocking information for a particular waterbody or town, use the table. Type the name of the waterbody or town into the search window to find all stocking reports for that location. You can also use the table to sort based on an attribute including townwaterbody, or type of fish

Use the map to zoom and pan to different regions of the state and discover new destinations for fishing. Zoom to the area you want to explore and then click on an icon for more information on that location. Stocking locations on streams are accurate, but fish swim, so be sure to investigate other reaches of the stream as well.

If you prefer, you can get a list of all waters that will be stocked this year.

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