2020-21 TWRA Winter Trout Stocking Program Underway

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has begun its 2020-21 winter trout stocking schedule. TWRA plans to release approximately 75,000 rainbow trout into Tennessee waters through March.

Tennessee Wildlife Fisheries Technician Darrell Bernd stocks rainbow trout into Cedar Hill Park Lake in Madison on Friday, Dec. 4. The TWRA will stock approximately 75,000 trout at various locations in its winter trout stocking program.

The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months. These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing. There are 43 locations for this year’s winter trout stocking program.

The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.

Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates can be found on TWRA’s website. For areas not listed in this program, see the 2021 stocking schedule and tailwater schedule on the website.
