The Fairfax County Park Authority is preparing for fall trout season by stocking Reston’s Lake Fairfax with 2,000 lbs. of rainbow trout.

Fall trout fishing season opens Saturday and runs through Nov. 8.

A total of 2,000 pounds of rainbow trout will be stocked in the lake, the park authority says.

There is a one pole and six-fish limit. For more details, visit the park authority website.

The trout come to Reston from Casta Line Trout Farm in Goshen, Va.

Daily fishing passes can be purchased from the Lake Fairfax Park’s main office. The fee is $15 for adults, $10 for 65+, and $7.50 for children 12 or younger.

In addition, fall season passes and yearly passes are available. Virginia freshwater fishing permit is also required.

Going fishing? Here’s a tip from Park Manager Dan: “Try fishing a Berkley Mice Tail three feet below a slip bobber on a 1/32 ounce of 1/16 ounce jig head.”
