The District is now starting its annual Trout Stocking Program.

If you are interested in stocking your pond with trout, fathead minnows, or crawfish this fall, the District will be accepting orders until Monday, September 23, 2019.

The pick-up date is Saturday, September 28. Rainbow and Brook trout are being offered for sale. Trout should be stocked in cold-water ponds. Anyone stocking a pond with fish must apply for a fish stocking permit through the NYS-Dept. of Environmental Conservation in New Paltz, NY.

For more information, you can go to the District’s website at or contact the District office at (845) 292-6552 for a brochure, order
form and a permit application.
