NE: Get Out and Catch Trout!

10-inch Rainbow Trout Stocked Across Nebraska

The snow has melted, the weather is warming and even the birds seem
to be signaling that spring is here to stay.

If this isn’t enough to get you outside after a long, snowy winter,
here is an added incentive: Nebraska Game and Parks has been
stocking catchable sized rainbow trout in many Nebraska locations
this month and has some additional locations coming up. A special
Saturday stocking bonanza is planned in the central and
southeastern part of the state.

Fishing for trout is an excellent family activity. Trout are
relatively easy to catch and respond to a variety of baits, making
them a popular option for beginning anglers. All you need is a
basic rod and reel for tackle, and marshmallows, corn or
nightcrawlers for bait. Prepared baits and small spinners can also
be used. You can even break out your fly rod!
