San Angelo, Rainbow Trout Will Be Stocked in The Concho River Wed.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has even shared the next time they will be releasing more rainbow trout in our area. TPWD will stock rainbow trout at the Irving St. bridge downtown San Angelo this Wed, Nov 24th, with more release dates to come in December and January. Rainbow trrout will also be released in both Foster Park and Javalina draw at the San Angelo State Park in December
TPWD’s rainbow trout Program Director, Carl Kittel said....“TPWD stocks catchable sized fish during winter months to create angling opportunities throughout Texas. Rainbow trout love cold water, can be caught on a variety of baits and lures and are great to take home and eat. Our winter rainbow trout program has been a favorite with anglers for over forty years.”
To give you an idea of just how big this stocking program is, between November of 2021 and March of 2022 The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is looking to stock over three hundred and thirty thousand rainbow trout.
Children under 17 are not required to have a fishing license, but a fishing license with a freshwater fishing endorsement is required for adults in the family. You may or may not know that anglers can fish in a Texas State Park for free without a fishing license. We've got a Texas State Park so take advantage of that opportunity.
Rainbow trout are both fun to catch and delicious for dining!
