The trout have migrated to tall oaks pool this year due to the renovations being done to Ridgewood Pool. We are stocking Tall Oaks with 750 rainbow trout and will fish them out over spring break. Fishermen can bring their own tackle or rent cane poles at the pool for $1.00 each. Fish will bite on corn, cheese, mini marshmallows, worms, and lures (single barb hooks only, please!). Bait cups will be available for fifty cents at the fishing hole. Groups of ten or more must pre-register to take advantage of a reduced rate of $5 per person.

About FISHING :
PETA ACTION :
The Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association in Lake Ridge, Virginia, plans to throw 750 rainbow trout into a swimming pool and encourage residents
to *** "fish them out" over the course of a week!
Fish have personalities, communicate, and form bonds with each
other, and this cruel annual event causes immense suffering to them.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence **that fish feel pain, and fish
clearly suffer when impaled by a metal hook
and dragged into an environment in which they can't breathe.
*** If Cats or Dogs were the
victims of ***similar abuse, the perpetrators
could be thrown into jail for cruelty to animals.
*** With so many other fun pool activities to choose from, there's no excuse *for tormenting fish for entertainment.

What You Can Do
- To combat fishing in your area, post "No Fishing" signs on your land if you have a pond or a lake, join or form an anti-fishing organization, and protest fishing tournaments. Encourage your legislators to enact or enforce wildlife-protection laws.
- Before you support a "wildlife" or "conservation" group, ask about its position on fishing. Groups such as the National Wildlife Federation, the National Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, the Izaak Walton League, the Wilderness Society, the World Wildlife Fund, and many others either support or do not oppose sport fishing.
