The Federation has a very active stocking program and stocks both fish and birds on public waters and lands. The stocking program uses Federation funds plus other available funds and providers to stock thousands of fish and birds each year in Orange County.

     Every Spring the Federation coordinates fish stocking programs for the rivers, streams and lakes in Orange County that are accessible to the public using fish purchased by the Federation, Orange County and NY State. (We do not announce the specific stocking dates for obvious reasons.

Stocking amounts, locations and dates can be changed without notice because of weather, access, funding, bird availability and other reasons. Locations can change yearly. In 2016 an increase in cost reduced the total number of birds that could be purchased.

Brownie and bucket DEC Fish Stocking Truck
     It takes a lot of hard work to do all of the stocking and we want to thank all of those who meet the trucks, pick up the birds and do all of the other things that need to be done to have such a successful program.
