Get your rod and reel ready. The Texas State Parks system is stocking parks with trout in rivers, ponds and lakes of 17 parks and numerous other bodies of water. When fishing in the state parks you don’t need a license, and some parks have free loaner tackle. Free trout fishing.
A total of 300,000 Rainbow trout will be released this winter. The Parks Service advises that it is best to go to the stocking spot as quickly as possible for the best luck in reeling in the fish. Cool weather and cold water is best for trout fishing as they do not survive well in warmer water.
