Spring Trout Stocking Update, March 28, 2019

It seems that every other blog post I have done for the past month has been about spring trout stockings.  Might as well continue the trend:

More rainbow trout stockings scheduled for March 30

LINCOLN, Neb. – Seven more lakes and ponds are scheduled to be stocked with rainbow trout March 30, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The Rock Creek State Fish Hatchery will stock 10-inch trout in the following locations, with quantities and approximate times (give or take 30 minutes): Oxford City Lake, 150, 11 a.m.; Plum Creek Park Pond, Lexington, 750, noon; and Lake Helen, Gothenburg, 2,000, 12:45 p.m.

The Calamus State Fish Hatchery stocking schedule, with deliveries from separate trucks, is: Neligh Park Pond, West Point, 900, 11:30 a.m.; and Holmes Lake, Lincoln, 4,000, 11:30 a.m.

The Grove Trout Rearing Station, which has not been operational since recent flooding, will deliver trout from Calamus as follows: TaHaZouka Park Lake, Norfolk, 1,500, 10 a.m.; and Pawnee Park West Lake, Columbus, 1,500, 11:15 a.m.

Scheduled trout stockings across Nebraska may be delayed because of inclement weather and widespread flooding, which impacted roads and hatcheries. An updated scheduled will be provided when conditions improve. Visit outdoornebraska.gov/fishstockingreports for more information.
