Rhode Island Ponds Get Fall Dose Of Trout - The Fisherman

Rhode Island Ponds Get Fall Dose Of Trout

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) wrapped up its fall round of trout stockings earlier this month, and while the autumn stocking is not as widespread as what we see in the springtime, it is still a great boost to the excellent freshwater fishing in the Ocean State.

Ponds stocked with rainbow and brook trout make for a great fishery for children, families and anglers of all ages. Trout will be stocked at: Barbers Pond, South Kingstown; Barberville Dam, Wood River, Exeter; Bradford Landing, Pawcatuck River, Hopkinton; Breakheart Pond, Exeter; Browning Mill Pond, Exeter; Carbuncle Pond, Coventry; Carolina Trout Pond, Richmond; Check Station, Route 165, Wood River, Exeter; Cronan Landing, Wood River, Hopkinton; Dow Athletic Field & Dam, Wood River, Hope Valley; Eight Rod Farm Pond, Tiverton; Grantville, Route 95 underpass, Wood River, Richmond; Kings Factory Bridge, Pawcatuck River, Charlestown; Meadow Brook Pond, Richmond; Olney Pond, Lincoln State Park, Lincoln; Round Top Ponds, Burrillville; Shippee Sawmill Pond, Foster; Silver Spring Lake, North Kingstown; Spring Grove Pond, Glocester; Stafford Pond, Tiverton; Upper Pawtuxet, Coventry; Willet Pond, East Providence; and Woodville, Wood River, Richmond.
