Hatchery Supported Waters

April 19 thru April 22, 2021

The NC Wildlife Resources Commission stocks trout within its Public Mountain Trout Waters program. This page will help you find the schedule of upcoming stockings in either Hatchery Supported or Delayed Harvest Trout Waters, as well as a list of recently stocked waters.

Planning Your Trip

Due to the fluid situation caused by COVID-19, some Public Mountain Trout Waters may not receive normal stockings this spring. The full stocking schedule for the season has been temporarily removed. However, please check this page regularly to find locations of stocked waters by week.

As a reminder, all anglers should practice social distancing and maintain a distance of 6 feet between themselves and others.

Visit the NCWRC’s COVID-19 webpage an updated list of trout waters that have been closed by local cooperators.
