Tarrant Regional Water District's annual Flyfest attracts anglers to the Clear Fork of the Trinity River each spring.

The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) has partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) to release trout on several dates, giving anglers an opportunity to test their fishing skills.

The first trout stocking will be Dec. 13 with a release of 1,250 fish at two locations: Trinity Park and River Park. TRWD invites residents to fish all weekend as the fish acclimate to their new waters.

Future stocking dates:

  • Jan. 2, 2019 (Trinity Park) and Jan. 3 (River Park). Each location will be stocked with 1,850 trout.
  • Feb. 6, 2019 (Trinity Park) and Feb. 8 (River PARK), Each location will be stocked with 1,850 trout.
  • March 9, 2019, at TRWD Flyfest at River Park.

Last year, TRWD and TPW released more than 8,000 rainbow trout into the river system. The events are free to the public. Participants need a valid Texas fishing license from TPW.
