General Stocking Information
For reference, the full 2016 spring stocking schedule is available online. In addition to this page, DNR’s Fisheries Service posts stocking updates on Facebook and Twitter and through its email news service. Anglers may also call 800-688-3467 and press option #2 to get a recorded weekly update.
Put-and-take areas have a five-trout limit and specific spring closures depending on location. Consult the Maryland Fishing Guide for closure dates and special management area restrictions.
The daily limit in areas (that are not put-and-take or special management areas) is two trout with no minimum size and no closed season, except in special trout management and put-and-take areas.
Reminder - If you spot poaching please place a call to our Catch a Poacher Hotline at 1-800-635-6124 - a cash reward is available for information leading to an arrest and conviction of a violator.
