ACA Fish Stocking, New Lakes

Stocked trout fisheries are popular in Alberta, accounting for nearly a quarter of the total number of days reported fishing at all waters in 2005. Given the popularity of trout-stocked fisheries in Alberta, this project seeks to expand the number of stocked ponds through identification and screening of ponds with potential to support a stocked trout fishery. We evaluated nine new ponds in 2019, with three being suitable for further investigation. Chestermere Pond, a candidate pond from 2017, remains promising and is undergoing further evaluation prior to being stocked.
