Beginning October 1, DWR will resume announcement of stockings via the Daily Trout Stocking webpage and the Trout Line (434-525-3474). Information is updated each day after 3 PM during the stocking season.
All Hatcheries are closed to visitors until further notice.
Waters in the Urban Fishing Program will be considered designated stocked trout waters from November 1 through April 30 only (trout license required). A trout license is not required from May 1 through October 31. In addition trout may be creeled from these waters year-round and the trout creel limit is 4 per day, no fish less than 7 inches. Once a trout is taken into possession by placing in the creel (basket, bucket, stringer, cooler, etc.) it becomes part of the daily creel limit and may not be released (culled). Stocking dates for these waters will be posted the week prior to stocking.
