LINCOLN, Neb. – Due to vehicle mechanical problems, the stocking of rainbow trout at Fremont Lakes State Recreation Area No. 2 is delayed until the week of Oct. 19.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission had planned to stock 5,000 10-inch trout at Fremont Oct. 15 to enhance fishing opportunities this fall and winter. Stocking schedules can change on short notice for a variety of reasons.
To see the full stocking schedule, visit: OutdoorNebraska.gov/fishstockingreports.
Fishing for trout is a great way to introduce children to fishing because simple and inexpensive equipment may be used. A spinning or spin-cast rod and reel with a hook baited with a worm will work well. Add a split shot a couple of feet above the hook and a bobber a couple of feet above the split shot. Spinners, salmon eggs, dough baits and artificial flies also can catch trout.
