Fall Trout Stockings 2019, West

October 2, 2019 daryl bauer

Without a doubt, one of the most common questions I am hearing right now is “when are the trout going to be stocked?”  Seems like everyone is wondering about the fall stockings of catchable-size rainbows in urban and parks waters around the state.

Those stockings occur about the same time every year, and that time is October, usually mid-October.  I do not have the full schedule yet for this fall’s stockings.  We are still working out some logistics and honestly, at least in eastern Nebraska, it has just plain been too warm to think about stocking cold-water trout.

However, we certainly have a big weather change right now, cooler weather is here, and western Nebraska has been cool enough and some stockings have been done already, more to come soon. . . .

Sept. 3 Sand Springs 250
Sept. 13 Grove WMA Pond 50
Sept. 16 Ponca State Park Pond 1,500
Sept. 19 Gilbert Baker Pond 600
Sept. 24 Rock Creek Lake 3,000
Oct. 2 South Morrill Pond 400
Oct. 2 North Morrill Pond 1,350
Oct. 2 Middle Morrill Pond 450
Oct. 3 Laing Lake 1,500
Oct. 3 and Oct. 8 Bridgeport N.W. Lake 1,400
Oct. 8 Scottsbluff Zoo Pond 900

When we have the rest of the stockings scheduled, we will get the word out.  You will see it here!  We will probably know more within the next week or so.

Oh, by the way, don’t sit around waiting for the stocking truck!  There are plenty of fall fishing opportunities that are prime right now!  Quit asking about the put & take trout stockings and GO FISH!
