Statewide trout stocking highlights for June

Idaho- Approximately 265,000 catchable-sized rainbow trout will be stocked throughout the state this June


Many of Idaho’s lakes and ponds are soon going to be bolstered with Idaho Fish and Game stocking roughly 265,000 catchable-sized rainbow trout, as well as a couple of tiger trout stocking locations this June. Wondering if the stocking trucks are going to be backing up to your favorite fishing hole? We asked our Fish and Game hatchery staff to boil down some of the most notable stocking highlights coming to your local fishery this month.

Clearwater Region

Campbell’s Pond – 2,000 rainbow trout

This is a scenic forest pond where anglers can expect good catch rates. Good fishing can be had from the bank with several docks, including one handicap-accessible dock and a developed boat ramp.

Deer Creek Reservoir – 1,875 rainbow trout and 2,500 tiger trout

This beautiful mountain reservoir was built specifically for trout fishing. Rainbow trout are stocked in this remote setting for high catch rates from shore or a boat. Boaters, please observe the no-wake restriction.

Deyo Reservoir – 3,600 rainbow trout

Nestled amid farms and timber, this waterbody provides a great family fishing experience. A maintained trail surrounding the entire reservoir features seven fishing docks and two large fishing peninsulas, making it easy to find a good place to fish. There is also a developed boat ramp, picnic shelter, benches and two handicap-accessible docks.

Elk Creek Reservoir – 4,500 rainbow trout

A forested road parallels the entire west side of this reservoir for easy access to fishing areas, with four fishing docks and a boat ramp. The east side of the reservoir provides great boat fishing opportunities where foot access is difficult.

Moose Creek Reservoir – 3,000 rainbow trout

A shallow lake in rolling timbered hills on Idaho’s Birding Trail, this reservoir is ideal for kayaks and float tubes. A trail surrounds the lake and nine fishing docks provide good shore fishing opportunities. Gas motors are not allowed.

Spring Valley Reservoir – 4,200 rainbow trout

Surrounded by rolling hills and trees, there is also a trail that surrounds the reservoir. In addition, fishing docks and platforms increase shoreline access. Gas motors are not allowed. This is Stop #35 on the Idaho Birding Trail!
