2013/2014 Rainbow Trout Stocking Schedule

2013/2014 Rainbow Trout Stocking Schedule

This list will be updated throughout the season to provide the most accurate information. Many lakes do not release their schedule in advance, so those will be added in as they're released. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, which stocks many of the local lakes, does not release a schedule. Instead, they announce individual trout plants about a week in advance.

The rainbow trout stocking schedule is provided here as an unofficial resource. SDFish.com has no authority over when, or even if trout are stocked. Trout stockings are subject to change due to a number of factors, including but not limited to weather, lake conditions, road conditions, and funding. We strongly recommend calling the lakes prior to your trip to verify the information.

Also see our listing of rainbow trout lake records, and articles on catching rainbow trout from the San Diego area lakes.
