Catchable-size rainbow trout are being stocked in city ponds and lakes across Nebraska. Make the most of this beautiful weather and get outside for some fishing.
Take the family, too. Trout fishing is great for kids and new anglers, as only simple baits and equipment are needed.
The full stocking schedule is below. In addition, the trout lake (Lake No. 5) at Two Rivers State Recreation Area near Waterloo opened on March 11 and was stocked with both rainbow and tiger trout.

Time outdoors is always time well spent. Hope to see you (and your family and friends) in the Nebraska outdoors sometime soon!
