Trout Stocking in Maryland

The full 2015 spring stocking schedule is available online and at DNR service centers and license vendors. 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 closures depending on location. Consult the 2015 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.
