Something fishy: TWRA stocks rainbow trout in Fountain City Lake

The two East Tennessee lakes will receive several hundred trout each on Dec. 20.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Get your fishing poles ready. 

On Friday, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency stocked 350 rainbow trout in Fountain City Lake.

They used big nets to transfer the fish from tanks and into the water, where they hope they'll thrive.

TWRA said the trout average about 10 inches in length. There's a daily creel limit of seven, but there's no minimum length limit. Anglers need a trout license as well as a fishing license to fish.

TWRA also stocked 400 trout in Greenbelt Lake/Pistol Creek in Maryville this week.

TWRA said its other winter trout fishery at Oneida City Park will be stocked one time on Jan. 8 with 3,000 trout.
