Winter Trout stocking set to begin in Middle and West areas of Tennessee

Posted By Clarksville Online News Staff On Tuesday, December 7, 2010 @ 6:00 pm In News | No Comments

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – The winter trout stocking program of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency continues to see growth. TWRA plans to release more than 88,000 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 program is continuing its expansion this year.

“We are excited to add three new sites this year with Edmund-Orgill Park in Millington, Shelby Farms in Memphis, and McCutcheon Creek in Spring Hill,” said Jason Henegar of the TWRA Fisheries Division. “This brings us to a total of 34 sites. This program will provide anglers that normally have to travel to fish for trout an opportunity to catch and harvest them close to home.”

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 [1].
