Maryland Trout Stocking Schedule May 19 2011

Way out in western Maryland, fish have been stocked, including the Savage River and streams in Allegany County.

The Savage River has a great population of wild brook and brown trout, possibly some of the best populations of both in the entire state. This includes fly fishing only and artificial lures only sections of the Trophy Trout Management Area. Stocking of hatchery trout in the Savage River tailwater was discontinued “after 1990.” So if you go, you might actually want to hit the real thing after you’ve fished the reservoir.

NOTE: Remember, the ban on felt soled wading boots is now in effect in Maryland.

Virginia Trout Stocking Schedule May 19 2011

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

Springtime, and the trout stocking is still going strong in Virginia.

The Dismal River, in Buchanan County, Virginia. It’s a Category A trout stream, meaning it’s stocked eight times between October and May. Hope it’s not as bad as its name. At least it is off limits to “snagging, grabbing, snaring, gigging and the use of a striking iron… to take non-game fish,” in case you were planning any of that.
