Spring & Fall Fish Stocking Sales
In September, after Rensselaer County's Schaghticoke Fair and Labor Day Holiday, the District holds its annual Fall Fish Stocking Sale. During mid-May, the Spring Fish Stocking Sale is available. These sales are open to the public to purchase various types of freshwater fish species to stock for recreational and/or wildlife habitat improvement purposes.
Click here for the 2020 Spring Fish Order Form. This order form changes annually with price changes and fish type availability. Payment for the fish orders are due prior to pick up and is accepted in the form of Cash or Check. DEC Fish Stocking Permits are altered periodically but generally remain the same. Stocking Permits are valid for 5 years after they are obtained from the DEC and can be presented to the District for future purchases while they are valid.
A link to the most current Fish Order Form and the NYC DEC Fish Stocking Permit Application is provided below. If you would rather have a copy of the Order Form or Permit Application mailed to you, please contact the Conservation District today at: (518) 271-1740 Ext. 3.
