Fish to stock private ponds available

The Annual Fall Fish Pond Stocking Program at the Albany County Soil and Water Conservation District for private pond owners is underway.

Species available include rainbow trout, brook trout, largemouth bass, channel catfish, and minnow. 

Orders are being accepted through Oct. 11 and will be available for pickup on Oct. 18 at the district parking lot.

Prior to stocking a pond, landowners should obtain a Farm Fish Pond License from the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation.  This license is free and is good for five years.

Farm Fish Pond License applications are available at the Conservation District Office on Martin Road in Voorheesville.  You do not have to be an Albany County resident to purchase fish from the district. 

For more information, call 765-7923 or e-mail susan.lewis@ny.nacdnet.net.
