Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency Winter Trout Stocking Program Underway

 

Clarksville’s Billy Dunlop Park to be Stocked December 12th and February 12th

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – The winter trout stocking program of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is underway. TWRA plans to release more than 90,000 rainbow trout into Tennessee waters from December through March.

The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for Middle and West Tennessee anglers during the winter months. These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing.

The previously scheduled December 14th stocking on the Harpeth River in Franklin has been cancelled. The shoreline around the former location of the old dam removed over the summer is being re-vegetated. Officials want a few more weeks for the vegetation to take hold in the area. The January 25th stocking at the site is expected to take place as scheduled.

The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit.

TWRA has announced a list of locations to receive stockings in this year’s program. Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates can be found on TWRA’s website at www.tnwildlife.org under the For Anglers section.
