Completed our first of four scheduled fish stockings for the year today, introducing more than 1,000 pounds of catfish combined across Camp Hawk, East Park and West Park. There's more than a few heavyweights in the bunch. Fishing is free in our parks - only a Kansas fishing license is required - and the weather this weekend looks perfect, so come on by.

Many thanks to Harbin Fish Farm for providing the new stock!Photos from Harvey County Parks's post
