Trout stocking at LLELA

Stocking dates will be on Jan. 9 and Jan. 30
Post Date:January 04, 2019 11:18 AM

The City of Lewisville, Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA), and Texas Parks & Wildlife will stock the Elm Fork of the Trinity River with close to 3,000 rainbow trout this winter as part of an ongoing program to boost the fish population and encourage recreational use of the river.

The first fish release of the season will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 9 - is postponed due to continued flooding along the Elm Fork at LLELA. We don't have a new date yet, but will share info as soon as Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has more details for us. 

The second fish release will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Actual stocking dates are dependent on weather, so anglers should call the hatchery at 903.676.2277 to verify.

Trout anglers will need the $5 Freshwater Fishing Stamp, which is included in all freshwater license packages. Anglers under 17 years of age are not required to have a license or stamp. Texas fishing regulations apply.

Anglers also are strongly urged to clean up their area before leaving LLELA. A recent volunteer event collected many pounds of discarded fishing line, lures and tackle, food packaging, and other trash left behind by anglers. These items create a hazard for fish and other wildlife, and for other LLELA visitors.
