Elm Creek trout stocking suspended until habitat improves

LINCOLN, Neb. – Rainbow trout stockings will not occur this spring at Elm Creek because high water has had a detrimental impact on trout habitat there.

Until stream conditions improve, the likelihood of Elm Creek holding and supporting trout is impaired. With more stable water flows, habitat conditions should improve at Elm Creek, which is located east of Red Cloud in Webster County, and stocking can resume in the future.

In addition, inclement weather prevented the trout stocking at Plum Creek Park Pond in Lexington on March 30. Instead, those 750 10.5-inch trout were stocked April 1. The stockings at Oxford City Lake and Gothenburg’s Lake Helen did take place as scheduled March 30.
