We have two parks here where I live that have ponds that the State of Texas has been restocking last few years with Trout and catfish . I been practicing with my flyrods at the ponds but not caught anything . Couple days ago dead fish started showing up so the city had the waters tested and today a confirmation came back , Golden Algal !! OH NO !!! I been waiting on the State to restock this winter so I could Trout fish . But now Beal Park will not be restocked on count of the Golden Algal . Another park a few miles away is being tested now to see if the Algal is also present even tho no dead fish have been showing up . Until test is finished State will not restock that one either . OH keeping my fingers crossed !! If they don't that means i'll have no local pond to flyfish at ... [censored] !!

Yeah it's heartbreaking . I was looking so forward to this pond being restocked . Just hope the other pond down the road doesn't get affect also .

That sucks. Bodies of water out your way are few are far between, most literally.

Ever make it over to the Lincoln National Forest? You could probably leave at breakfast time and be there by lunch. For some reason or another they have brookies out there. Grab a 3wt, your hiking boots, a jug of coffee and go check it out man.

There are no rec pools even close to these ponds so no draining into ponds . All rec pools are drained directly to sewer .
