Special Trophy Trout Stockings This June

DWR is planning to hold special stocking events at the Crooked Creek and Clinch Mountain fee fishing areas this June! Hatchery biologists will be stocking several hundred citation-sized brook, brown and rainbow trout to test the skills of anglers of all ages.

Trophy trout stockings at Crooked Creek will take place during the week of May 31. The Clinch Mountain trophy stockings will take place during the week of June 14th.

A freshwater fishing license and daily permit is required to fish the fee areas. Licenses and permits will need to be purchased prior to arrival. Children 12 and under may fish without a permit as long as they are accompanied by a permitted adult and their combined creel does not exceed that of the adult (6 trout).
