Trout stocking report

Over 63,000 trout will be stocked across Massachusetts starting around mid-September.

Summer may be winding down, but the fishing opportunities are still going strong! Fall is a great time to fish, get tips for fall trout fishing and fall bass fishing.


Trout stocking will begin when water temperatures start to cool down, around the middle of September. When stocking begins, locations will be updated daily on the map below. Click any point on the map for more information. 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.
