Getting ready for trout season? This would be a great kick-off! On Nov 7 – Nov 8, 2020 from 6:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve 2,500 pounds of Rainbow Trout with large fish up to 12 pounds will be stocked.

There will be prizes for the top 5 largest fish caught over the two-day Trout Opening Event. Greg Even, coordinator for this event, said “This event is great for everyone, including families that want to spend some quality time together. It’s also perfect for sport fishermen because there will be some trophy fish included in the stock”.

You can win a 2-night Cabin Vacation if you catch a trout 5 pounds or larger and you will be entered into a drawing. If you catch a tagged Trout you will win a prize! Prizes include: fishing poles, tackle boxes, bicycles, camping gear and free fishing passes to Santee Lakes.
