NH Trout Stocking Report
Spring stocking is now complete.
Check the charts below to see where fish have been stocked. Spring/summer stocking activities are now complete for 2014, but lots of those fish are still out there for you to catch. If you happen to see one of our stocking trucks on the road, it is most likely transferring fingerling trout among hatcheries.

About trout stocking in New Hampshire:
Fish stocking in New Hampshire occurs primarily from mid-March to early July. Trout cannot tolerate water temperatures when they reach the mid-70s, so the fish need to be stocked before the weather gets warm. We also have to consider the need for "grow-out space" for production of next year's trout. As the young trout start to increase substantially in weight during the spring and summer months, their densities need to be spread out among the available rearing containers.
