FREE Trout Fishing Event! Texas Parks and Wildlife will stock 750 rainbow trout into Wyatt Pond at the Mineola Preserve FREE & NO fishing license required.

A light-action rod and reel combo with small fishing hooks, light line (12 lb. test or less) small bobbers and small split shot is a good starter kit. For bait, bring salmon eggs, whole kernel corn, marshmallows, small worms, or prepared trout baits. Small artificial baits such as rooster-tails and Luhr Jensen Super Dupers also work well. You’re allowed to keep five rainbow trout per person per day, so if you want to keep fish, please bring a stringer or small cooler. (If you don’t have any fishing gear, volunteers from the local area and TPWD will be on hand to help with fishing and to provide loaner rod and reels and some bait.)
