The trout lake at Two Rivers State Recreation Area is open again
for family fishing this spring and summer.
This lake is not only a great place to take children fishing, it
will provide protein for the dinner table. All trout caught in the
lake must be harvested and not released.
To fish the trout lake, located in western Douglas County,
anglers first must purchase from the park office a daily trout tag
for $4. Each tag is good for a daily bag limit of four trout. A
person may have up to three tags per day and 12 trout in
possession. An adult angler may have two children under the age of
16 fishing under the authority of his tag, but the group bag limit
still is limited to four trout per tag.
The trout lake (Lake No. 5) is open from 7 a.m. to sunset each
day. Anglers, except residents younger than age 16, must have a
Nebraska fishing license. All vehicles entering the park must have
a park entry permit. Anglers possessing trout on any other lake at
Two Rivers SRA must have a trout tag as well. Anglers are allowed
to use one fishing rod and reel each.
There were 267 tags sold and 537 trout caught on the opening
weekend, beginning March 12, with more than 11,000 trout remaining
in the lake.
