•Stocking dates are subject to change. For last-minute updates, contact the hatchery that is stocking your location. Phone numbers for hatcheries are listed at the bottom of this page.
•Neighborhood Fishin' ponds (marked with * ) will be stocked every two weeks throughout the season.
•Statewide Regulations:
◦No Minimum Length Limit Daily Bag = 5 trout
◦An angler fishing in a Community Fishing Lake (CFL) may use no more than two poles. Many trout stocking sites are classified as CFLs.
◦Trout anglers will need the $5 Freshwater Fishing Stamp, which is included in all freshwater license packages. Anglers under 17 years of age are not required to have a license and don't need to purchase a stamp. More about fishing licenses and stamps.
◦Licenses and stamps are not required when fishing within a Texas State Park.
