Walker County Public Fishing Lake being stocked with Rainbow Trout

The lake will reopen for trout season on Friday, Nov. 27. The daily creel limit is four trout per angler.

The Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries will soon stock more than 1,000 rainbow trout in the fish pond at Walker County Public Fishing Lake near Jasper.

The lake will be closed from Nov. 24 to 26, 2020, and reopen for trout season on Friday, Nov. 27. The daily creel limit is four trout per angler.

A $5 Daily Trout Permit is required in addition to a valid freshwater fishing license in order to fish for trout. Trout anglers may also fish for bass, bluegill, catfish and crappie. Anglers can purchase their freshwater fishing license at various license vendors throughout the state or online.

Rainbow trout are more of a cool weather fish so are very active in water temperatures where Alabama’s bass, crappie and bluegill are more selective feeders.

Fishing and hunting are activities that the whole family can enjoy year-round in Alabama, while still practicing social distancing and avoiding the spread of the coronavirus. Many Alabamians will spend the long Thanksgiving weekend hunting and fishing.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through four divisions: marine resources, state lands, state parks, and wildlife and freshwater fisheries.
