Stocked Trout Streams in West Central New York

In a given stocked stream section, most bridges receive trout at every stocking (usually one or two per spring). If there are sufficient volunteers along to carry fish away from the trucks, areas in between the bridges are sometimes done, provided that they are not posted against fishing and are totally open to the public for angling. Posted sections of streams are not stocked with trout.
