Fishing & Stocking Reports

Stocking Reports:

The Mono County trout stocking program starts about two weeks before opener (last Saturday in April) and continues all summer throughout 21 bodies of water in Mono County. 

Sustainable Fishing: Think "catch and release." A healthy Mono County fisheries system needs healthy fish. Keep only what you need release the rest to reproduce, grow, and become a Trophy Trout.
