The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department stocked Eldridge Lake with 500 rainbow trout on Feb. 1, adding to the bass, catfish and perch fingerlings that have been stocked in the past. Trout are a cold-water fish that thrive when temperatures drop.
Sugar Land residents are welcome to fish the lake; however, all state fishing regulations apply – check www.tpwd.state.tx.us for up-to-date information.
The lake is part of Eldridge Park, a 43-acre community park located on Eldridge Road near the West Airport intersection. The park facilities include a community meeting room for 65 people, picnic pavilion, restrooms, grills, benches, picnic tables, 1.2 miles of trails, fishing pier, concession stand, playground, 10 soccer fields and 500 car parking lot.
