The program is funded by participants who buy inland trout stamps.

No one may catch trout before 5 a.m. on Oct. 20. Anglers must have a fishing license as well as a stamp, except for those under 16, blind or disabled, or on active military leave.

Fishing licenses and inland trout stamps are available for sale at many bait shops, sporting goods stores and other retail outlets.
