Trout will be stocked in Spring Hill, Franklin, three times through March

TENNESSEE WILDLIFE RESOURCES AGENCY

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s winter trout stocking program has resumed as the new year begins and will continue at selected locations, including Spring Hill and Franklin, through the middle portion of March.

The program provides numerous close-to-home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months when the waters of these streams are cold enough to support the trout. The fish will be stocked at locations all over the state. These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing.

The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.

Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates and a full list and schedule of stocked streams can be found on TWRA’s website at www.tnwildlife.org.
