2008 Rainbow Trout release to Burroughs Park pond

The next release of 2000 trout in Burroughs Park will be January 11th, 2008. Each year Texas residents are invited to fish for these rainbow trout with lures. You may keep five. Children under the age of 16 do not need a fishing license and those fishing off of the bank in a state park are also exempt from needing a license to harvest these fish. Otherwise, a fishing license IS required. Burroughs Park is not a state park.
