The Get Out and Fish! community fishing program partners LDWF with parks and neighborhood ponds throughout the state to provide a quality fishing experience for all ages. Each of the 12 community fishing sites is managed by inland biologists and stocked with channel catfish at intervals during the year, and with rainbow trout in winter.
Yesterday LDWF announced that rainbow trout will be coming to the ponds in mid-January. Stocking information will be provided via their Facebook page. The ponds include: Girard Park (Lafayette), Zemurray Park (Hammond), Torres Park (Chalmette), Burbank Park (Baton Rouge), Kiroli Park (West Monroe), Turners Pond (Minden), Polk City Park Pond (Vidalia), Purple Heart Memorial Park (Ragley), Grambling City Park Pond (Grambling), Fabacher Pond (Youngsville), Mayfield Park (Ruston), and Hutchinson Park (Walker).
