How it works

If you are looking for stocking information for a particular waterbody or town, use the table on the MA Trout Stocking Report page. Type the name of the waterbody or town into the search window to find all stocking reports for that location. You can also use the table to sort based on an attribute including townwaterbody, or type of fish.

Use the map above (or on the MA Trout Stocking Report page) to zoom and pan to different regions of the state and discover new destinations for fishing. Zoom to the area you want to explore and then click on an icon for more information on that location. Stocking locations on streams are accurate, but fish swim, so be sure to investigate other reaches of the stream as well.
