It's time again to add 4,000 pounds of squirming rainbow trout to three Johnson County Park & Recreation District lakes.
The stockings will take place Wednesday, Oct. 22, at each respective lake's boat ramp.
Kill Creek and Heritage Parks will both be stocked with about 1,000 pounds of trout each and Shawnee Mission Park will be stocked with about 2,000 pounds of trout.
All three lakes will then be closed to fishing until 5 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25.
Before fishing for trout in JCPRD waters, here's what you need to know:
Permits are available at the JCPRD Registration Office, Building D, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam; the John Barkley Visitor Center at Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road; and at numerous local retail outlets.
The district's rainbow trout program is entirely supported by funds collected through JCPRD fishing and trout permits.
For more information on this program, contact the John Barkley Visitor Center at Shawnee Mission Park at 9130-888-4713. The center is open seven days a week.
