This list will be updated throughout the year 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 trout at many of the local lakes, does not release a schedule. Instead, they announce individual trout plants about a week in advance.
The stocking schedule is provided here as an unofficial resource. SDFish.com has no authority over when, or even if fish are stocked. Plants 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. See our lake contacts page for applicable contact numbers.
For a list of fish stocking dates which were scheduled to occur in the recent past, visit our Recent Fish Plants in San Diego page.
* – Denotes stocking date is “week of” and not the actual stocking date.
