Mammoth Lakes Fishing Stocking Schedule

The Town of Mammoth Lakes, and the Department of Fish and Game have a very well defined "fishing enhancement" program. Believing that fishing is important to our economy, they fill the major lakes with trout, which have been grown in local hatcheries, such as the infamous trophy Alpers Trout". The lakes are filled in rotation on Thursdays. This is the stocking schedule as published by the Mammoth Sports Fishing Association, dates subject to change.

Mike Seefeldt, Fish Hatchery Manager from the Hot Creek Hatchery and Department of Fish and Game (DFG) reports that their annual allotment for catch able trout is 250,000 pounds, but DFG usually raises more. They also plant about 15,000 pounds of fish in the 2 to 5 pound range. DFG also stocks over 100,000 fish for Crowley Lake. Inland Region 6 is what you wantto look for. This link will take you to the Department of Fish and Game, Mono County stocking schedule. These are smaller fish about 5 oz. each and placed each fall for the next season. Mt. Whitney Hatchery produce about 170,000 pounds of catch able trout each year, plus excess brood stock. Fish Springs produces about 300,000 pounds of catchable trout.

That's a lot of fish... so we don't want to hear about getting 'skunked out'. And.. we have included the Alpers Trophy Trout as well. If you don't know about Alpers trout well then you just don't know about these prized 3-10 pounders.
