Texas Rainbow Trout Stockings

Each year when the water gets cold enough to support rainbow trout the Texas Parks and Wildlife does a put and take stocking of rainbows in waters where they may be caught by local fisherman. There should be a stocking area close to you and while these are hatchery raised fish they provide recreation and the chance to take an unusual fish. The fish usually run from 8-10 inches in length so take ultra light gear. I have taken kids to these stockings of trout for several years and they have all had a ball catching the rainbows. It is not like catching a wild trout but it is still fun. We have had the best luck with garlic cheese on a tiny hook. The link below is to the stocking schedule and locations in a town near you. Take a kid and go have fun, Wild Ed
