January Outing – Hunting Trout at Possum Kingdom

The club’s January outing will Saturday, January 21 at one of our favorite locations this time of year: the Possum Kingdom Tailrace, located between Highway 16 bridge and below the PK dam.

Texas Parks and Wildlife stocks the Possum Kingdom Tailrace with Rainbow trout and the latest stocking schedule shows it will occur on 12/27 and 1/17. The stocking happens approximately ¾ mile below the Possum Kingdom dam where Texas Highway 16 crosses the Brazos River.

Recommended rods are 4-6 weight, floating line with 9 ft. trout leaders. However, Stripers, carp and other warm water species can be caught in the river, especially the stripers below the dam. For this species, the heavier weigh rod with leaders and tippet is recommended.
