Fall Trout stocking completed today at Veterans Park

Granger's Pond at Veteran's Park was stocked today with 1200 pounds of fresh, lively rainbow trout.  There were also a few bonus palimino and brown trout.  Most of the trout were in the one to two pound range, however there were also several larger fish.  Hurry out now to enjoy the Fall colors and some great fishing!
