Homeowners may benefit in many ways from stocking their ponds with trout, such as visually enjoying trout swimming in their pond and seeing increased wildlife on their land. The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District’s Annual Trout Sale will be held on Saturday, May 4th at 11:30AM. Customers must pre-order all rainbow and brook trout by Thursday, May 2nd in order to receive them on May 4th.
A permit is required by the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department for the species most appropriate for your pond. A copy of this will need to be submitted with your preorder, as well as a copy of a map that clearly depicts the location of your pond. You will also need to bring your original permit to the sale in order to receive your trout.
If you do not have a permit you may pick up an application from the PCSWCD office, request one by email from us or download the application from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife website at hwww.maine.gov/ifw/licenses_permits/forms_applications.htm
