Spring Break Trout Stocking set for March 12
POSTED: 02/17/2010
The public is invited to watch the stockings, which will take place on Friday, March 12. Beginning at 2:30 p.m., 1,000 pounds of live fish will be released near the Heritage Park dam. At approximately 3:45 p.m., 2,000 pounds of fish will be released near the Shawnee Mission Park boat ramp. Watching the stocking is a great kids' activity during Spring Break week. Perform a catalog search for the keyword "fishing" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.

Following the stockings, the two lakes will be closed to fishing until the parks' opening at 5 a.m. on Saturday, March 13.

Area anglers ages 16 to 64 will need to have a Kansas fishing permit, a Johnson County Park & Recreation District fishing permit and a JCPRD trout fishing permit. District fishing and trout permits are available at: the JCPRD Registration Office, Building C, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam; the John Barkley Visitors Center at Shawnee Mission Park; and at numerous local bait and tackle shops.

The supplemental stocking follows an well-attended earlier stocking of 4,000 pounds of trout in the two lakes on Feb. 24.
