BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

BREC helped spread some early holiday cheer across East Baton Rouge Parish on Thursday.

Workers filled three of their fishing lakes with rainbow trout prior to the Geaux Fish Rainbow Trout Fishing Rodeos, which take place this weekend.

A Missouri-based company was hired to drive 1,000 pounds of fish to the Capital City.

BREC began the program several years ago after receiving a grant. However, the procedure was so popular that it is now included in its budget.
