Goshen Dam restocked with trout

GOSHEN — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department recently announced that trout stocking will resume this spring at Sugar Hill Reservoir, also known as Goshen Dam, in Goshen, following the completion of safety enhancements made to the dam over the last two years.

The reservoir will be re-stocked in early May with 1,350 yearling brook trout averaging nine inches and 450 two-year-old “Trophy Brook Trout” averaging 13 inches in length.

For the past two years, the 58-acre waterbody was almost completely drained of water to allow for important dam safety improvements. Work was completed this past winter and the reservoir has now refilled to its normal minimum summer levels, allowing for trout stocking to resume. 

Goshen Dam Road is still closed to the public due to soft road conditions, but public access will return to normal this spring once conditions allow.
