How about "Take a Kid Stocking."

We all know the phrase and organization "Take a Kid Fishing"  how about "Take a Kid Stocking."

Beside taking my boy's fishing I also take them to stock trout.  While we have good hold over and native populations the realty is we have to stock our waters.

Stocking is fun and teaches them stewardship and it's a great way to spend a few hours with your kids. Make sure if you do this to bring a change of cloths, because the trout are not the only creatures that end up in the river.  This time my boys stayed dry.

Here is my youngest stocking some trout in a unnamed New Jersey river.


  1. I noticed that he was very gentile putting them in the water. Good teaching, Dad.


  2. Very nice. Heck...if you and the kids want to come help our club do it's stocking, the door's open. It's great to see you getting them involved. A lot of people are very happy to go catch and take stocked fish, but not many know what it takes to get them there.

  3. Take a kid stocking... I like it! Thanks for the vids.
