The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC is a non-profit organization who works in partnership with the provincial government to deliver the fish stocking program as well as providing conservation fish culture services that support steelhead and sturgeon recovery programs.

Lower Mainland lakes are typically stocked by the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery between late March and early June, and again between late September and early December. Most of the rainbow trout stocked are between 12 and 16 inches in length. Due to high catch rates, It is a fantastic urban fishery for everyone, especially young, entry level, disabled and retired anglers.

Natalie West from the society will be talking about this fishery and answering your questions at this year’s Fraser Valley Boats and Sportsmen’s Show. For stocking updates, we will once again be hosting the trout stocking database so be sure to check back in late March. Here are some related video clips.
