Rainbow trout stockings resume at Gracie Creek Pond

LINCOLN, Neb. – Catchable-size rainbow trout were stocked in Gracie Creek Pond on Aug. 19 after the recent installation of a new fish screen at the outlet culvert.

Plans to resume regular seasonal stockings at the popular fishery located on the north side of Calamus Reservoir in Loup County should be welcoming to anglers. Trout will be stocked at a reduced rate of 600 fish per stocking for the foreseeable future.

The capacity of the pond has been reduced because of extensive sand deposited from March 2019 floods. Plans are being made to excavate or dredge to restore the pond and enhance the fishery potential.
