Neighborhood Fishin’ Lakes and State Parks
Neighborhood Fishin’ lakes offer families in major cities some of the best opportunities to catch rainbow trout this winter.
Trout will also be stocked at more than 15 Texas State Parks throughout the state. Many state parks offer excellent fishing amenities such as fishing piers and shoreline access, cleaning stations, and equipment rentals for tackle and kayaks or canoes. As a bonus, anglers don’t need a fishing license to fish within a Texas State Park.
We will be stocking rainbow trout below several dams and spillways, which often have very cool water and provide excellent conditions for trout fishing.
This year, rainbow trout will be stocked into the Canyon Tailrace on the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake, the Lewisville Tailrace located on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River below Lake Lewisville, and the Possum Kingdom Tailrace on the Brazos River below Possum Kingdom Lake.
Other stocking locations include dozens of local city and county managed park ponds, the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center casting pond, and several rivers including the Frio, South Llano, Guadalupe, and the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.
- No Minimum Length Limit; Daily Bag = 5 trout
- An angler fishing in a Community Fishing Lake or from a dock, pier or jetty within a Texas State Park may use no more than two poles.
