Public Visitation Closed at Grove Trout Rearing Station

A brief news item in my blog today.  Not a big deal, not going to affect a lot of people, but some of you will want to know:

Grove Trout Rearing Station temporarily closing for maintenance

The Grove Trout Rearing Station near Royal, Nebraska, in Antelope County, will close to visitors April 11-15 for maintenance and inspection on the diversion pond.

“While the maintenance takes place, staff will be using heavy equipment, and public safety is taken into consideration for this closure,” Fish Production Manager Joe Cassidy said. “While this is a necessary part of the operation of the facility, we want this to be brief and resume public visitation. We thank visitors and anglers for their understanding.”

Grove Trout Rearing Station annually stocks approximately 120,000 catchable-size trout in Nebraska’s waters.

None of this will impact the fishing opportunities on the East Branch of Verdigre Creek nor Grove Lake.  Plan to GO FISH, just do not plan to tour the fish hatchery while you are there.
