By the last weekend in January, Texas Parks and Wildlife employees will have stocked the swimming pool at Dow Park in Deer Park with 500 rainbow trout. This will be in anticipation of Roscoe’s Fishing Adventure on Jan. 26, an annual fishing event during which residents of all ages gather to socialize, take photos with Deer Park’s canine mascot, Roscoe the Rec Dog, and catch a few fish.

“This is our fourth year to have this event at our Dow Park Pool,” said Debra Culp, Athletic and Aquatics Coordinator for the City of Deer Park’s Parks and Recreation department. We are able to remove all of the chemicals from the swimming pool and make it safe for the rainbow trout to swim until caught. We usually have 500-600 people come out over the two days that we hold this event.”
