PFBC Warmwater/Coolwater Stocking
(includes selected Coldwater-juvenile trout and steelhead)
Fish Species Historical Summary

Warmwater/coolwater (ww/cw) species of fish such as walleye, muskellunge, catfish, panfish and selected fingerling coldwater species (lake trout and steelhead trout) (view more species) are stocked by the Commission generally as juveniles (sub-legal size). The best way to use this list of ww/cw stocking information is to look at prior years as it takes time (3 to 4 years depending upon the species) for juveniles to reach desirable or legal size (regulations allow anglers to keep)....more.

The table below provides a statewide summary of numbers stocked for each species of fish. To view water bodies stocked, see our county listings of warmwater/coolwater (and selected coldwater) historical stockings, or the current year planned stockings. Visit our trout stocking pages for information related to catchable trout.
