2018-19 TWRA’s Winter Trout Stocking Resumes

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s winter trout stocking program has resumed as the new year begins and will continue at selected locations through the middle portion of March. The 2018-19 program began in December.  

 

The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months.

These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing. 

 

The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.

 

Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates can be found on TWRA’s website at  www.tnwildlife.org.
