Winter Trout Stocking Schedule
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will release trout in seven locations this winter in areas that would not support them during warmer months.
The popular program is supported by the sales of the trout fee. Anglers are required to have a valid fishing license and the trout fee to fish for or possess trout.
