Each year the Trinity River at River Park is stocked with Rainbow Trout.
- The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) stocks the river as part of the annual Winter Trout Stocking Program. As of this posting, the scheduled stocking date is January 7, 2015. For the latest update, go to TPWD’s Rainbow Trout Stocking Schedule.
- The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) stocks the river through an effort separate from TPWD’s program. As of this posting, the scheduled stocking date is January 22, 2015. For the latest update, go to TRWD’s Events Calendar.
