“This donation is very important to TPWD because red drum, a saltwater species, does not reproduce naturally in these freshwater systems and the fishery is maintained only through stocking,” said Brian Van Zee, of TPWD Inland Fisheries Division in Waco.
“In addition, the donated fish are larger than what is normally stocked so we expect a high rate of survival from these stockings, which could mean better red drum fishing at these lakes in the future.”
