Medical Center Park in Amarillo will be stocked with trout on Friday as part of the Neighborhood Fishin’ program according to the Amarillo Globe News.

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has planned to stock the park 20 times this year: eight times with trout, and 12 times with channel catfish.  Trout are stock during winter months and catfish during summer.

“The main reason we do this is to provide fishing opportunities for urban Texans. ... The program is designed to stock catchable-size fish,” said John Clayton, a fisheries biologist with Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.
