Trout Stocking in the Lower Saluda River

SCDNR stocks Brown and Rainbow Trout every year into suitable lakes and rivers including the Lower Saluda River.  Over 300,000 catchables are distributed under this program annually along with as many as 100,000 fingerlings. SCDNR does not release the time and location of stocking runs. These efforts are aimed toward perpetuating South Carolina’s trout resource and providing a satisfactory angling experience for the sportsman. Healthy trout fisheries are the priceless reward for all South Carolinians for proper trout management. To see a weekly trout stocking summary, visit

Here is a video of SCDNR releasing Rainbow and Brown Trout at Saluda Shoals Park.
