2013 Rogue Valley-area trout-stocking schedule

The following is a breakdown of the rainbow trout-stocking schedule for water bodies in the upper Rogue River basin this spring and summer.

Unless otherwise noted, the fish are all legal-sized rainbows.

The heading for "Rogue above Lost Creek" refers to a series of locations along the upper Rogue River and Union Creek off Highway 62.

The schedule is by week only, and actual stocking can occur any time during that period. Thousands of trout have already been stocked into some area lakes this spring, including Agate, Emigrant, Expo Pond, Lost Creek, Reinhart Pond, Selmac and Willow.
