Around 2,000 rainbow trout were placed in the Legion Street Pool Friday morning by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency personnel, while prepping for Johnson City’s annual “Say YES to Fishing, Say NO to Drugs” fishout. From 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, children ages 3-14 are invited to fish for free at the pool, and poles and bait will be provided. On Sunday, the rest of the community can fish for the remaining trout from noon to 5 p.m. for a donation of $10 per hour. Proceeds will go toward the fishout program. For more information, call the Johnson City Police Department at 434-6122.
