With trout-fishing season just a few weeks away, New York's Department of Environmental Conservation has spring stocking lists available. Trout stocking begins in mid-March and runs through May. The DEC website provides a list of stocked waters, anticipated number of fish to be released, and approximate stocking times. The season for trout and salmon runs from April 1 through October 15, 2016.  Bass season runs from the third Saturday in June through November 30.
