NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s 2022-23 winter trout stocking program resumes in early January at selected locations as the New Year begins and will continue through the middle portion of March.

    The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months. 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.
    The first regional stocking sites for 2023 will be on Jan. 4th and 5th and include:

    West Tennessee: Lake Graham, Jackson
    Middle Tennessee: Cedar Hill Park, Madison
    Percy Priest, Nashville
    Cumberland Plateau: Cumberland Mountain State Park, Crossville
    Athens City Park, Athens
    East Tennessee: Oneida City Park, Oneida

    Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates can be found on TWRA’s website at in the fishing section and the 2022-23 Winter Trout Stocking icon. For areas not listed in this program, see the 2022-23 stocking schedule and tailwater schedule on the website.
