Youth-Only Stocked Trout Program

The waters listed below have been designated by the Director and will only be considered Youth-Only Stocked Trout Waters from April 1 through June 15. Only youth age 15 and under will be allowed to fish during that time period. Adults can assist youth only by baiting the hook, casting, and removing the fish from the hook. Adults cannot assist with setting the hook or retrieving the fish. The daily creel limit shall be 3 trout. Adults assisting youth are not required to have a fishing license or a trout license. Parking or access fees may be required at some locations.

Youth-Only Waters will be stocked 3 times between April 1 and June 1. Stocking times may vary depending on the distance from the hatchery to the receiving water. DGIF will strive to stock between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. DGIF may postpone or change the date of any of these stocking events due to circumstances that compromise the resource or public safety.

Water Stocking Date
Northern Fauquier Community Park Pond (Marshall)
(4155 Monroe Parkway)

The youth-only trout stocking scheduled for May 10th at Northern Fauquier Community Pond has been cancelled because of high water temperature. This body of water was previously stocked on April 4th and April 26th. As part of DGIF’s Youth-Only Stocked Trout Program, Northern Fauquier Community Pond will next be stocked with trout in the spring of 2019. However, DGIF plans to move stocking events for this pond to earlier dates to correspond with cooler water temperatures.
