The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) has announced that Lake Tiogue in Coventry will be stocked for Opening Day of trout season as a result of improved water levels in the lake. Bring on the rain!
Dexter Pond in Scituate will be stocked and open to anglers of all ages as per regulation; however, the Town of Scituate will not hold a kids derby at Dexter Pond this year. Dangit.
For Opening Day, trout will be released into more than 100 waterways. Visit www.dem.ri.gov for a complete list of stocked waters. For more information on Opening Day and trout stocking, call DEM’s Division of Fish & Wildlife at 789-0281.
