More Channel Catfish! This week, the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources delivered another stocking of 1100 catfish to Lake Montgomery in Noble Park. This is the second delivery of catfish in two weeks to fully stock the lake.
The City and Fish & Wildlife Resources are partners in the Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) program. For FINs lakes including Lake Montgomery, the daily limit is five rainbow trout and four catfish. The program currently includes 44 lakes statewide with Lake Montgomery at Noble Park receiving four yearly stockings of channel catfish and three annual stockings of rainbow trout. Anglers 16 years old and older need a State fishing license, unless license exempt. There is a Resident Senior License for folks 65 and older.
