Largemouth Bass stocked at Veteran's Park

Veteran's Park was stocked yesterday with 1800lbs of Largemouth Bass and 1500 Catfish.  The stocked bass were all at least 12" and many were larger.  These new additions should add more excitement for anglers at the park.  The trout from last week's stocking are also still biting well.

Paine Creek at Indian Point is low and clear but still holding some of the recently stocked trout.  There have also been some nice size steelhead in the mix.  Happy Fishing!
