Jones Lake Management utilizes specialized delivery trucks to transport fish in insulated, live-haul tanks with carefully monitored oxygen levels.

Free Estimate

Once at the pond, the fish are transported to the water and acclimated by our delivery crew. Fish are measured by total length from closed mouth to pinched tail. Before delivery, they are counted by hand or weighed on certified scales.

All fish orders of more than $500 within our standard delivery area are eligible for live delivery to your body of water. Our delivery fee for qualifying orders is $39. Other goods and services cannot be added to an order to reach the $500 minimum required for delivery. Fish orders under $500 or outside our standard delivery area will incur a minimum $250 delivery fee. Note that during peak delivery season, our lead time averages four weeks. Our spring delivery season begins in early March. Fish deliveries are suspended during the summer months and resume in mid-September.

Order Confirmation and Payment Information 
Once an order has been placed, our team will email you a confirmation of your order and an estimated delivery lead time. You will be contacted by phone or email approximately one week before your tentatively scheduled delivery. At this time, you will be given a date and two-hour window for delivery. Our team will verify your order and answer any questions you may have about your upcoming delivery. You can email fishdeliveries@joneslakemanagement.com for more information.

Fish Stocking

Stocking native gamefish helps create a balanced and thriving aquatic ecosystem. These fish play vital roles in controlling certain species' populations, contributing to a healthier food chain, and promoting biodiversity. Additionally, native gamefish enhance recreational fishing opportunities and overall enjoyment of your lake or pond.

We offer a diverse selection of native gamefish, including Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Sunfish, and more.

Yes, we do. We understand that transporting live fish can be challenging, so we offer reliable delivery services to bring the native gamefish directly to your property. Rest assured, our team takes every precaution to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of the fish.

Yes, our experienced team is well-versed in the ecological needs of various fish species. We'll work closely with you to assess your waterbody and recommend the most suitable native gamefish that align with your goals and environmental conditions.

Before stocking, it's essential to evaluate the size and depth of your lake or pond, existing fish populations, and any potential issues like invasive species. Our experts can guide you through this assessment to ensure successful stocking.

Our team follows best practices for stocking native gamefish, ensuring a careful and responsible approach. We acclimate the fish to your waterbody's temperature before release and consider the ideal locations to promote their survival and integration into the ecosystem.

The ideal time for stocking can vary based on your region's climate and water conditions. Generally, spring and fall are favorable seasons when water temperatures are mild, helping the fish acclimate better to their new environment.
