In response to growing concern about the spread of COVID-19, DGIF will be making the following changes to the 2020 Trout Stocking Program. Beginning April 3, daily trout stockings will no longer be posted on the DGIF website or Trout Line. All open waters will continue to receive their full allotment of trout stockings as conditions allow. Heritage Day, scheduled for April 4 is cancelled. All Pre-Announced stockings including Urban Program Waters and the Youth-Only Stocked Trout Program will be rescheduled and will no longer be announced before hand. Additionally, trout stockings at the Department's three Fee Fishing Areas (Clinch Mountain, Crooked Creek, and Douthat Lake) will not begin in early April as planned, however, the Fee Areas will remain open to fishing. During this time the requirement for the daily use permit will be waived but normal licensing requirements will remain in place. Stockings at the Fee Areas will resume as soon as possible. We continue to encourage everyone to continue to get outdoors and remind you to follow social distancing guidelines. Updates on the trout stocking program will be posted as they become available on the DGIF website or by calling the Trout Line at 434-525-3474.
