Trout stocking


Hundreds of thousands of trout are released each year into the rivers and dams of the State’s south-west. Trout are released at varying sizes: as fry, yearlings, advanced yearlings and ex-broodstock throughout the year to provide a variety of fishing experiences for anglers.

See the table below for planned locations for releasing trout in 2022. Please note, these locations and numbers may be subject to change.

2022 trout stocking plan

In 2022, rainbow and brown trout will be released by the  Pemberton Freshwater Research Centre at a variety of locations. In total, the Department will release just over 200 000 trout during 2022.
