Trout Stocking at Lakeside Park

Filed under: City |

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department works with local governments, including Duncanville, to stock neighborhood lakes with channel catfish and rainbow trout.

troutThis is all part of a program called the Neighborhood Fishin’ program that offers a quality fishing experience for urban families to enjoy. Lakes in the Neighborhood Fishin’ program are stocked with 9 to 12 inch fish every two weeks for 10 months a year. There is nearly always an abundance of fresh fish available!

In Duncanville, Lakeside Park was recently stocked with Rainbow Trout. These fish are fun and easy to catch. They prefer cold water and therefore are stocked during the cold months of December through March. Trout stock dates for Lakeside Park started February 7th, with other stock dates scheduled for February 26th and March 7th.
