Fish Stocking Reports

Nebraska’s fisheries managers employ many tools to maintain and enhance our state’s fish populations and fishing opportunities. Stocking fish is just one of those tools. Each year millions of fish are stocked in Nebraska waters from one end of the state to the other, dozens of species are stocked in hundreds of waters.
