Fish Stocking

A well stocked pond can provide many recreational opportunities for your family. The Ontario County SWCD fish stocking program provides suitable species at a reasonable cost. Residents with ponds may purchase certified disease free fish to place in their ponds. For those who ordered from the 2022 Fish Sale, fish must be picked up at noon on Thursday, May 19, 2022. Be sure to bring a container of your pond water to transport your fish. This year, we offered fathead minnows, largemouth bass, yellow perch, bluegills, triploid grass carp and fish food. DEC permits are required for fish stocking in private ponds. Permits are free and application information can be found at Triploid grass carp require an additional DEC permit and information about that can be found at
