Trout Stocked In State For Winter Fishing Season

Anglers can count on trout to fish over the winter season. Officials with the Department of Environmental Management’s Fish and Wildlife Division stocked approximately 2,000 rainbow trout in several ponds statewide during the first two weeks of December.

Those ponds include Carbuncle Pond in Coventry, Barber Pond in South Kingstown, Silver Spring Lake in North Kingstown, and the Wood River with access from Route 165 in Exeter.

The trout stock will hold over for the opening day of trout season on April 12. Anglers need a current fishing license and a Trout Conservation Stamp to keep or possess a trout.

A person can take no more than two trout per day through the end of February.
