Lake Shawnee stocked with trout

October 30, 2012

Lake Shawnee has been stocked with 7,000 pounds of rainbow trout. Lake Shawnee is closed to fishing until 6 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 to give the trout time to disperse and acclimate to their new surroundings.

Shawnee County Parks and Recreation participates in the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Community Fisheries Assistance Program (CFAP). CFAP funds offset the cost of fishing programs at Lake Shawnee including the stocking of the lake with trout in the spring and fall of each year. All KDWPT licensing and permit requirements apply for fishing at Lake Shawnee.
