LAKE TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Odds of catching catfish just got much better on Lake Tyler.

On Wednesday, the City of Tyler and Texas Parks and Wildlife released more than 1,000 catfish into Lake Tyler.

Workers had them in tanks and then dumped them into the lake Wednesday morning.

Texas Parks and Wildlife say catfish numbers were lower than expected this year, but they plan to try a different method next year in hopes of turning out thousands more fish.
