ODWC had a major issue with our trout vendor this winter. The place where we contract to purchase trout for our winter fisheries had a fish kill and that led to unpredictable stockings for all of our trout waters. The vendor has since worked very hard to provide trout via alternate sources and we have been getting stocked with appropriate numbers and sizes of trout. But the schedule for the stockings is not something ODWC can plan, schedule, or pass along to our anglers because of the logistics related to how, when, and where the trout are coming to our waters. We simply cannot pass along information far in advance because we do not want to mislead our anglers given the unpredictable nature of the stockings this winter.
The trout fisheries are getting stocked, so please enjoy the angling even if the exact stocking schedule is not set in stone or made public far in advance.
