Trout Stocking in Maryland

March 11, 2015 Update:

Attention Deer Creek Trout Anglers,

Due to road construction/closure of MD Rt. 24 within Rocks State Park, Deer Creek will not be stocked from St. Clair Bridge Road downstream to Rocks/Chrome Hill Rd. No trout will be stocked in this section of Deer Creek and the area is closed to the public. Deer Creek will be stocked with the same number of trout as in past years. All other traditional Deer Creek stocking locations will be stocked and open to the public.
