Press Release

Rainbow Trout Stocking Schedule

June will be a busy month for personnel from Fish and Game's McCall and Nampa Hatcheries as they will be releasing more than 89,000 catchable-sized rainbow trout at the following locations. Due to continued high runoff, most regularly-stocked rivers and streams will not be stocked during June. With Free Fishing Day around the corner, local ponds will be a focal point of trout stocking efforts this month.

 

Unfamiliar with a particular stocking location? Use Idaho’s Fish Planner application on the Fish and Game website (idfg.idaho.gov) to find that special fishing water.
