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.

You may download the 2021 Spring Fish Stocking Sale Order Form here.  Fish type availability and prices may change each sale, depending on season, ect..  Payment for the fish orders are due prior to pick up and is accepted in the form of Cash or Check.  Pick-up is currently held at the USDA Service Center Parking Lot at 61 State Street in Troy, NY.


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.
