Texas: Trout Coming to Neighborhood Ponds Across the State

This year has pressed the pause button on some activities, but it won't stop trout stocking! You'll find rainbow trout in Neighborhood Fishin' ponds and more than 100 community lakes beginning in late November. Look over the stocking schedule for specific dates and a location near you.

Rainbow trout are not hard to catch, so they're a good way to introduce children to the fun of fishing. Watch our short video, Tips for Catching Rainbow Trout, for 6 can't-miss pointers from our biologist Evan Cartabiano. These trout are meant to be eaten, so check out Trout Fishing Basics for how to prepare your catch for the trip home.

Wherever you fish, wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet away from others, use hand sanitizer frequently, and if you don't feel well – stay home. You'll find more information in our press release, Texas Winter Tradition Returns.
