Catchable-sized Trout Stocked Across Wisconsin

Over 750,000 catchable-sized brook, brown and rainbow trout have been stocked into Wisconsin waters between last fall and this spring.  

Raised by DNR hatchery staff at the Nevin, Osceola and St. Croix state hatcheries and the West Central Region and Northeastern Region Cooperative fish rearing facilities, these fish are meant to help supplement natural trout populations. 

They also provide great fishing opportunities for anglers fishing urban fishing waters, which received over 68,000 trout that were raised in partnership with fishing clubs. Cooperatively managed with local municipalities, these small lakes and ponds are frequently used to host fishing clinics
