Two San Antonio lakes to be stocked with thousands of fish
SAN ANTONIO- This week, Texas Parks and Wildlife will be stocking fish into neighborhood lakes across Texas. Two San Antonio lakes will be stocked with thousands of catfish beginning April 20. San Antonio's Southside Lions Park and Millers Pond will receive continuous stocking of catfish every two weeks through November.
When fishing out at Southside Lions Park and Millers Pond, keep in mind that catfish prefer strong-smelling baits. These include night crawlers, chicken livers, shrimp, stink bait and cut hot dogs. A fishing license is mandatory for adults and can be purchased starting at $11 dollars. This includes a one-day, all-water access license.
TPWD will stock catfish in lakes in the following Texas cities: Houston, Austin, Dallas-Forth Worth, Waco and Amarillo, among others. Catfish are usually not stocked in August because of the heat.
Neighborhood Fishin', hosted by Texas Parks and Wildlife, allows kids 16 years old and under to fish for free with no license required. They also host neighborhood fishing in 18 city and county parks near picnic tables and restrooms.
