This is an excerpt from the April 23, 2008 VDGIF Outdoor Report, for those who do not have access to it: Catfish Stocked in Urban Fishing Lakes The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) stocked 7,250 harvestable-size channel catfish in five (5) urban lakes on March 26 and 27, 2008. The five lakes and numbers stocked are as follows: Cook Lake, Alexandria, 1,000; Dorey Park Lake, Henrico County, 1,750; Shields Lake, Richmond, 1,750; Locust Shade Park Lake, Prince William County, 2,000; and Old Cossey Pond, Fredericksburg, 750. These stockings are part of VDGIF's efforts to continue the Urban Fishing Program; channel catfish stockings are designed to provide additional fishing opportunity during the warmer months, following the winter trout stocking portion of the program. All of the stocked channel catfish were farm-raised in Arkansas and should be excellent table fare. Anglers are reminded that a Virginia Fishing License is required for residents 16 years and older, and a separate trout license is also needed to fish for stocked trout. Non-residents 12 and older need a Virginia Fishing License and all non-residents regardless of age need a trout license.
