SALTILLO – The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) recently stocked approximately 500 rainbow trout into the bank-fishing pond at Lake Lamar Bruce near Saltillo. According to MDWFP Fisheries Biologist Trevor Knight, “the rainbow trout we stocked in December 2015 were a popular attraction for anglers at Lake Lamar Bruce last year. They provided a unique angling opportunity in Mississippi and were easy to catch.”
The pond at Lake Lamar Bruce is the only public water body in Mississippi where anglers will have the chance to catch rainbow trout. This is a great opportunity to introduce someone to fishing as well as catch some nice fish during the winter.
Anglers can harvest up to three trout per person per day with no size restrictions. Anglers must have a valid fishing license and a state lake daily or annual fishing permit to fish in the pond.
The fish were provided by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service Greers Ferry National Fish Hatchery and stocked by the Pvt. John Allen National Fish Hatchery in Tupelo.
