The news release went out earlier this week, so let me spread it around some more: Rainbow trout stockings scheduled this spring LINCOLN, Neb. – Catchable-size rainbow trout are being stocked in city ponds and lakes across the state by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Fall Trout Stockings 2019, West

FallTroutStock1

Without a doubt, one of the most common questions I am hearing right now is “when are the trout going to be stocked?”  Seems like everyone is wondering about the fall stockings of catchable-size rainbows in urban and parks waters around the state. Those stockings occur about the same time every year, and that time is October, usually mid-October.  I do not have the full schedule yet for this fall’s stockings.  We are still working out some logistics and honestly, …

Seriously, no “April Fool’s” in this blog post, although I have seen some good ones today.  No, I have some news updates and I ain’t fooling.  As is often the case, some of you may already be aware of these updates, but then I will get questions from folks and realize that not everyone “got the word”.  So, if there is anything I can do to let more folks know what is going on, well, I am going to do …

Update on Spring Trout Stocking

DSCN4510

It is going to take a while to sort out what impacts all of this flooding is going to have on our recreation, wildlife, and parks areas.  Likewise, it is going to take some time for us to evaluate just what the impacts are going to be to many private and public fisheries.  Right now, I have heard a lot of things, some I know to be true, but some I am going to wait until we know more.  I …

Spring Trout Stockings. . . . Postponed Until Further Notice

SpottedRainbowCrop

I have been sitting on a schedule of spring trout stockings for at least a couple of weeks now. Gonna keep sitting on it. Obviously, with winter holding on stronger than ever right now, we will be waiting for warmer weather and some open water before those stockings will happen on parks and urban waters around the state.  I am not going to mention a schedule, because right now there ain’t one. That includes the spring opener for the Trout …

What Lurks Beneath, Nov. 2018, and an Update

Fall2018Saugeye

Our Nebraska Game & Parks Commission fisheries biologists are finishing up their fall fish sampling around the state.  I am starting to hear a few stories about what they sampled, will be getting data summaries and starting to put together next year’s Fishing Forecast in the coming weeks. Once again let me post a disclaimer before I show you the pictures:  When pointy-headed fisheries biologists sample fish populations they are NOT trying to capture the biggest fish in a population.  …
