Trout need cool water to survive. Trout become very stressed when water temperatures reach the 70's. The waters of Calhoun County typically warm up into the 70's by mid-May. For this reason we will be postponing the trout stocking until this fall.

It is true that stocking in the fall will allow a longer recreational window for trout fishing. An October stocking will allow months of fishing opportunities. Unfortunately, a late May stocking would require that fish be caught out very quickly in order to avoid mortality.

The trout have been purchased by private donations via the Stock the Pond Fund. The trout have been donated to the Calhoun Park for stocking at a later date. It is also of hope that the trout can be stocked in all the ponds of the park so they can be more accessible to the citizens of Calhoun County. Unfortunately, the lower pond is the least accessible pond for the young or elderly.
