Salmonid Stocking


New York has an extensive stocking program for Lake Erie and the rest of the state.  While there is limited amounts of successful natural reproduction of steelhead in New York tributaries, there isn't enough to support an entire sport fishery.  Pictured below are two figures copied from the 2002 Lake Erie Unit Annual Report to the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. The first gives 2001 stocking information and the second gives historical stocking numbers.  If you would like to download the entire report in pdf format, click here.  The report covers all fishery assessments the LEU does throughout the year.

If you would like see lake wide stocking numbers, click here.  The stocking information runs from 1989 - 2001and includes all the riparian agencies surrounding Lake Erie.
