Trout Heritage Day

Trout Heritage Waters for 2020


In response to growing concern about the spread of COVID-19, VDGIF will be making the following changes to the 2020 Trout Stocking Program. Heritage Day, scheduled for April 4 is cancelled. All pre-announced stockings including Urban Program Waters and the Youth-Only Stocked Trout Program will be rescheduled and will no longer be announced before hand. All waters will still receive their full allotment of trout stockings for the season but stockings will not be announced ahead of time. Additionally, trout stockings at the Department’s three Fee Fishing Areas (Clinch Mountain, Crooked Creek, and Douthat Lake) will not begin in early April as planned. Stockings at the Fee Areas will resume as soon as possible. Information on daily trout stockings can be found on the DGIF website or by calling the Trout Line at 434-525-3474.
