TPWD Delivers Rainbow Trout to Precinct 4 Parks

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) will deliver more than 1,000 rainbow trout to each of the following Precinct 4 parks Friday, Jan. 12:

  • Burroughs Park, 9738 Hufsmith Road in Tomball
  • Bane Park, 9600 W Little York Road in Houston
  • Dennis Johnston Park, 709 Riley Fuzzel Road in Spring
  • Meyer Park, 7700 Cypresswood Drive in Spring
  • Pundt Park, 4129 Spring Creek Drive in Spring
  • Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve, 20215 Chasewood Park Drive in Houston

Delivery times will vary depending on the TPWD delivery schedule. Anglers are encouraged to take advantage of rainbow trout fishing opportunities while they last, as rainbow trout are only available during the winter months. TPWD recommends using cheese, kernel corn, nightcrawlers, red wigglers, and meal worms to catch trout. Suggested lures include a small inline spinnerbait or a spoon.

Rainbow trout are delivered to Precinct 4 parks annually to provide ample fishing opportunities year-round, as other fish species are less active during the winter. Late winter and early spring are also successful times for catching white bass and crappie, while catfish can be caught year-round.

There is a daily bag limit of five trout per angler and no minimum length limits. All TPWD rules, regulations, and licensing requirements apply to the public waterways within Precinct 4.

Anglers 17 years of age and older are required to purchase a valid Texas fishing license with a freshwater stamp endorsement. The freshwater stamp endorsement has replaced the trout stamp. A freshwater fishing license may be purchased at most sporting goods stores and a valid Texas driver’s license is required. Anglers may also purchase a license over the phone by calling the Texas Parks & Wildlife credit card license sales line at 1 (800) TX LIC 4 U [1 (800) 895-4248] or online at www.tpwd.state.tx.us.
