Since 1998 the Division of Fish and Wildlife has jaw tagged more than 1,000 trout for the "Hook-A-Winner" Program. These tagged fish are distributed as part of the spring trout stocking program for the enjoyment of the state's trout anglers. The fish are stocked throughout the state and available beginning opening day.
If you are a lucky angler who lands one of these fish, send your name, address, fish tag number (anglers should NOT send the actual jaw tag, just the number) and location of catch to:
