Rainbow Trout Stocking at Joe W. Brown Park

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries stocked the lagoons at Joe W. Brown Park with Rainbow Trout on Tuesday, January 26, 2023 at 7:00 a.m. as part of the "Get Out and Fish!" program.  Come out and enjoy this unique opportunity to fish for the cold-weather Rainbow Trout that can only be stocked during the heart of Louisiana winters when water temperatures are below 67F.  

We received 500 pounds of rainbow trout, so come and fish for them while you can.

Bait recommendations: PowerBait and corn since these fish are from a hatchery. Here's a link to the Get Out and Fish! program: https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/get-out-and-fish. Check out the "fishing gear checklist" for more info.
