ACA Fish Stocking Project

The ACA Fish Stocking Project provides anglers with increased opportunities to catch and harvest rainbow trout, brown trout, and brook trout in regions of Alberta where angling opportunities are limited. Recipient waterbodies are prone to winterkill and require annual stocking of fish to maintain angling opportunities. We stocked 61 waterbodies. We stocked two waterbodies with brook trout only and 59 waterbodies with rainbow trout. We supplemented eight of the 59 rainbow trout-stocked ponds with brown trout and nine of the 59 rainbow troutstocked ponds with brook trout. We stocked 93,995 rainbow trout, 2,500 brown trout, and 6,760 brook trout for a total of 103,255 trout. Four ponds normally on our stocking list were not stocked this year: 1) Hermitage Pond was being assessed by Alberta Environment and Parks for whirling disease risk; 2) Fort Lions Community Pond at West River’s Edge still had yellow perch in it from a previous stocking; 3) Kinsmen Lake was dredged in 2019 to improve water quality; and 4) the water quality at Pro Alta Pond was deemed unsuitable for trout. We installed signage at seven waterbodies.
