TEXAS HILL COUNTRY FLY FISHERS
Trout Lease 2022 Enrollment Begins Nov 15.
The Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife considers trout a non-invasive species and stocking trout into waterways is not a threat to area Texas Wildlife. The Club's TROUT LEASE Program's purpose is to extend Texas game fishing resources by maintaining and stocking area trout leases.
The Trout Lease "club-members-only" program runs from November through April of the following year. The program encompasses several private access creeks and ponds in the Fredericksburg and Kerrville areas, strictly barbless hooks, catch and release only.
At the time of lease sign-up, only current club members with a prepaid club membership for the following year may participate in the Lease Program. Lease cost is a pass-through fee based on the current cost of water's rent, pounds of fish needed to be purchased, and amount of fish feed needed.
Our lease management team is continually looking expand the program by acquiring additional lease waters. If you have waters you want to lease or know of potential lease waters please contact us at TroutLease@THCFF.org

Lease Manager for 2022 is Don Anderson. The leases' first stocking is in December and the fishing days extend through April, depending on seasonal water temperature changes. A second stocking often occurs in late January or early February.
Fishing lease slots, are available (with paid fee) only to members of Texas Hill Country Fly Fishers Club. In November email notifications are sent out to the previous year's lease-holders with remaining slots offered to all remaining club members on a first come first serve basis. People wanting to participate should be sure to read each club email for upcoming lease news. Available lease slots book very quickly.
The total number of lease-slots available each year are determined by the amount of available lease waters and the respective water conditions near the stock dates.
Lease holders are expected to assist with stocking and maintaining lease waters as part of learning effective game fish lease management.
