Stocked Trout Streams in CNY

Legend

Species: BT - Brown trout, RT - Rainbow trout, ST - Brook trout

** Indicates streams that along with the year-old trout are also stocked with larger two-year-old brown trout (13"-16").

PFR: Public fishing rights are public rights-of-way through otherwise private land. Please be considerate of the landowners and their property. Yellow "Public Fishing Area" signs are posted along sections of streams with PFR. Maps are available for all streams with PFR.

Open by Owners: Refers to stocked sections of streams where informal fishing access (No Public Fishing Rights) is provided by willing landowners. Some landowners within a stocked section may not allow access (lands are posted against fishing), and these areas are not stocked with trout by the state. Stocked sections without PFR are open to fishing by willing landowners, so respect their property, or you risk losing public access to these streams.

Section: Upper and Lower Limits of stream section that is stocked with trout. Note:T stands for Tributary.
