Ponds Stocked with Trout for Fishing

It's that time of the year again for trout fishing, and earlier this morning rainbow trout were stocked at South Weeks Park Pond.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife partners with local governments to stock small neighborhood lakes with rainbow trout and channel catfish every two weeks throughout most of the year.

By stocking these small lakes and ponds, it provides Texomans the ability to have enjoyable fishing experiences close to home, including keeping some fish to eat.

Tyler Wengert, a fisherman that comes to the Pond often said, "As a fisherman it's great, because Arrowhead's so low right now, and there's not a lot of places to fish. But they're stocking this little pond so at least we have a place we can come when we get a day off and come fish, it's great."
