The 26th Annual Pool Trout Fishout will take place February 8-10, 2008 at Southwood Hallaran Pool (a.k.a. Cindy Hallaran Pool at 1600 Rock Prairie Rd). The event is hosted by the College Station Parks and Recreation Aquatics Division and is a great opportunity for kids and beginners to learn about trout fishing.
