RI Lakes And Ponds Stocked For Winter Fishing
The state Department of Environmental Management is stocking six Rhode Island ponds with brook trout for the winter fishing season. According to a press release, the agency is stocking six ponds with 1,000 brook trout. This is on top of the 2,000 trout that were stocked last month.
Anglers are required to carry a current fishing license and a Trout Conservation Stamp. The daily bag limit currently stands at two fish per day.
Anglers are forbidden from wearing felt-soled footgear, as it promotes the spread of invasive species.
