Catfish Stockings

Every fall, DWR Aquatic Wildlife Resources staff conducts stockings of Channel Catfish at over 120 publicly accessible small impoundments around the Commonwealth. Channel Catfish often have difficulty reproducing in Virginia, so these stockings are necessary to maintain productive fisheries and great fishing opportunities. Over 60,000 10–12″ Channel Catfish were stocked throughout October 2021. Additional catfish stockings will take place in spring 2022.
