Tulsa area residents have an opportunity to fish for trout without venturing far from home. This year the selected pond is located in LaFortune Park, located at the corner of 51st Street and Hudson in Tulsa.
This Tulsa trout fishing opportunity is possible by a partnership between the Oklahoma Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the Tulsa Fly Fishers and Tulsa-based conservation group NatureWorks. The season opened Dec. 26 and the pond will be stocked periodically through March.
Special “children only” days will be a new addition into this year’s schedule. “Kids Only Days” are slated for Dec. 26-31, Jan. 18, Feb. 15, and March 15, 2010. On these days fishing will be open to children under the age of 16 only, and children fishing on these days must be accompanied by an adult. The accompanying adult may fish on these days. All other days during the season will be open to all ages. All anglers over the age of 16 must have a valid Oklahoma fishing license. A bag limit of four trout per day, per angler has been set, and catch and release of trout is discouraged. For more information log on to tulsaflyfishers.org.
