Maryland Trout Stocking
Please note that during construction at the Brighton Dam, the fly fishing only section below Brighton Dam will not be stocked.
2019 FALL STOCKINGS
On October 16, Ron Briggs, Gregg Sholly and I float stocked about 400 rainbows down from Eden Brook. We all went swimming after finding rocks that were not conducive to wading boot purchase and the rain was of little help either.
The water when we arrived was clear and very low (~20 cfs); a couple hours after dark the flows peaked at ~450 cfs....a rise of about 2 feet! Nice flush of much needed water....hope the trout stayed close to where we planted them!!??
The same number of rainbows was also stocked at the Savage Mill section of the Little Patuxent...for those interested in a small meal of two trout. All trout today were a healthy bunch of 10-11" rainbows with a sprinkling of goldens to mark the holes into which they were dropped.
For up-to-date stocking information throughout the state, go to the Maryland DNR website.

In the spring of 2015, Ron Brooks made this excellent video of PPCTU Stocking Below Brighton Dam.
Thanks Ron for your efforts!
Joe Kunsman provided the following photos and footnotes of their crew stocking below Brighton Dam. Thanks Joe.
