Fishing for Rainbow Trout in Texas was
non-existent with the possible exception of
McKittrick Canyon in the Guadalupe Moun-
tains of far West Texas. Since 1966 ex-
perimental work the Texas Parks and Wild-
life has been stocking rainbow trout on the
Guadalupe River below Canyon Dam. By the
mid* 1970s the program proved extremely
popular and selected sites received annual
stockings. In 1983 some smaller state park
lakes were added to the annual list. In 1986 twelve sites were
stocked with rainbows.
Last year 61 sites and over 257,000 trout were released. This
year there will be 70 sites. Between the 70 sites, again over a
quarter of a million Ash will be distributed by Paths and Wildlife.
The trout will be between eight and 10 inches long.
The trout are purchased through U.8. Fish and Wildlife Service
in Arkansa and some of the Ash are obtained from hatcheries in
Missour. The trout program is funded by sportsmen purchasing
the 07 Freshwater Trout Stamp. In 1986 Texas became the 26th
state to require that freshwater trout anglers purchase the
Some cities have benefited so much from the program that
they even share in the oost of the program. Last year one city sent
the department a check out of appreciation because of the
economic boost to the community. This year, Bear Creek Park in
Keller, Bethany Park in Allen, Nolan Creek in Belton, PamapCity
Park in Pampa, and Pickens Lake west of Sherman will receive
extra trout because these cities donated money to purchase
extra trout. Any city interested in contributing to next year’s
program should oontact its local management biologist to see if
the lake is an approved area.
To Ash for the rainbow trout you will need a Ashing license and
a freshwater trout stamp. Except for those persons exempt from
sport Ashing license requirements. The daily bag limit for rain-
bows is Ave. There is no minimum length limit.
Fishing techniques range from using cheese with a cane pole to
hand-tied flies and a Ay rod. Ultralight spinning tackle using four
to six pound test line and 1/32 to 1/8 ounce spinners are com-
monly used. Dry or wet Aies, spinners, small spoons and bucktail
or feather jigs are also effective. Probably the most effective
method of catching hatchery reared trout is using a 8 or smaller
hook baited with whole kernel corn, cheese, salmon eggs, or
In my hometown of San Angelo every winter on the day the
trout were released into the cold waters of Spring Creek, fisher-
men would line the banks of Foster Park in anticipation of
catching a limit of trout.
Coastal Bend residents do not have to travel as far as San
Angelo to catch Rainbows because on January 7 at Corpus
Christ! Lake State Recreation Area the Parks and Wildlife will
release approximately 2000 Ash. Another 2000 Ash will be
released on January 15 at Lakeview in Corpus Christi.
Merry Christmas, and I hope to see yall in the outdoors...

53 ticks remaining.
After Randy Cole’s free throw,

The Panthers would have three
ohanoes to win the game In reg-
ulation from the foul line, but not
one shot would fall.
After a techincal foul, Aransas
Pass got the ball baok for one last
chance, but a traveling violation
with two ticks remaining forced
the extra session.

work in overtime, as he had six of
his team’s eight points. Spear-
