It's something to trout about

Big Spring gained about 2,000 temporary residents Tuesday — with a heavy emphasis on the “temporary” part of the statement.

As part of an annual restocking effort, slightly more than 2,000 rainbow trout were released into Comanche Trail Lake Tuesday. Another 2,000 fish will be added in January.

The re-stocking effort is a continuation of a program that began about four years ago, said Debbie Wegman of the Visitors and Convention Bureau.

“(First Christian Church Pastor) Ken McIntosh started all of this,” Wegman said. “He told us we really needed to stock the lake with rainbow trout so we'd attract more fishing to the lake. We started it four years ago, and we've done it every year since.”
