The Pacific Rod & Gun Club, the San Francisco Tyee Club, the Golden West Women Flyfishers, Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, and the San Francisco Police Athletic League (PAL) and many individuals have been working hard to support the reestablishment of fishing in Lake Merced. California Trout should be commended for donating 92 rods and reels to the effort. The North Lake has been restocked on a regular basis for some time. Beginning in August of 2009, the South Lake has been stocked with trout by the California Department of Fish and Game. Both the Lake Merced Youth Fishing Program website and the Rod & Gun Club website provide information on when the lakes are scheduled for stocking.
