Rainbow Trout Stocking Schedule

Click Here for the TP&W website!

  • Dates and locations are subject to change. For last-minute updates, contact the hatchery that is stocking your location.

  • Neighborhood Fishin' ponds (marked with * ) will be stocked frequently throughout the season.

  • Harvest Regulations:

  • No Minimum Length Limit; Daily Bag = 5 trout

  • An angler fishing in a Community Fishing Lake (CFL) or from a dock, pier or jetty within a Texas State Park may use no more than two poles.

  • Special limits are in effect on parts of the Guadalupe River.

  • License Requirements:

  • 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.

  • If you've never been trout fishing, here are some how-to tips.
