The release says the most recent delivery included about 300 pounds of trout raised at the Milford Fish Hatchery in Junction City, Kan. The overall trout stocking program is possible with funding support from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Community Fisheries Assistance Program.

Topeka’s Lake Shawnee also received a load of rainbow trout from Crystal Lakes last weekend, with the lake reopening for fishing Saturday on a windy, clear day with choppy waters. About 100 anglers could be seen around the lake Saturday morning, many of whom were kids with their parents.
