TWRA schedules winter trout stocking

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has announced its 2018-19 winter trout stocking schedule. TWRA plans to release approximately 90,000 rainbow trout into Tennessee waters beginning in late November through March.

There are 43 locations statewide 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. A trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.

The dates and locations are subject to change. The entire schedule and updates can be found on TWRA’s website at
