Scheduled Fish Plants

  • Content Ad
  • 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. 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.

    Fish plants will remain on the schedule for a couple months after completion to provide a resource of lakes that have recently received fish plants. Older stocks will be removed periodically.
