TROUT DAY 2023
RUSSELLVILLE--- The CADDIS Fly Fishing Club, the Russellville Recreation and Parks Department and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) are again partnering to bring seasonal trout fishing to Russellville. The AGFC will stock Pleasant View Park pond with 1,000 rainbow trout. TROUT DAY 2023 will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. till noon. This will be an opportunity for people of all ages to “Catch a limit of Trout in Russellville”.
The AGFC Family and Community Fishing Program has brought urban trout fishing to more than 20 communities around the state and it has been tremendously successful. Hundreds of catchable trout will be stocked. We encourage novice and experienced fisher-persons to take the opportunity to catch this cold water species. “We hope people take this opportunity to take time to enjoy time outdoors fishing with and teaching their children about fishing”, said Jerry Falleur of the CADDIS Fly Fishing Club. Bait fishing, fly fishing and fishing with artificial lures are allowed.
Trout fishing instruction will be available the morning of the event.
There will be a free fishing rod to the first 50 anglers to check in that are 16 years of age and under. There will also be door prizes and hot dogs will be grilled and available until they run out.
