Statewide Winter Trout Stockings Provide More Angling Opportunities

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is providing seasonal angling opportunities by stocking surplus trout in 40 small impoundments across central and western North Carolina between. This started yesterday and continues through December 22nd. Staff will stock more than 60,000 brook, brown and rainbow trout, all 10 inches or longer. Anglers can harvest up to seven trout per day in the impoundments — with no bait restrictions and no minimum size limits.

Brook trout, 10 inches or longer, will be included in the 2022 winter impoundment stockings.
