BIG SPRING -- Do you like fishing? If so we have good new for you.

On Tuesday the City of Big Spring and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department teamed up to stock the Comanche Trail Lake with more than 4,000 catchable Rainbow Trout.

This comes as part of a campaign across the state by the TPWD to increase fishing opportunities.

“The goal of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s rainbow trout stocking program is to release catchable size rainbow trout in select waters in Texas to provide a unique winter fishing opportunity, to provide additional fishing opportunities in urban areas and to provide support to educational fishing programs. Since 1966 the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has stocked rainbow trout into numerous locations around the state. To date the total number of trout stocked exceeds 8.2 million," said Program Director Carl J. Kittel.

The lake will be stocked again on January 4, 2019.
