LINCOLN, Neb. – The trout lake at Two Rivers State Recreation Area (SRA) will open for family fishing March 10.
The trout lake will be stocked with 9,000 11- to 12-inch rainbow trout. In addition, there will be 500 11-inch tiger trout and 250 rainbow trout up to 15 inches present.
All trout caught in the lake must be harvested and not released. Anglers must first purchase from the park office a daily trout tag for $6. Each tag is good for a daily bag limit of four trout. A person may have up to three tags per day and 12 trout in possession. An adult angler may have two children under the age of 16 fishing under the authority of his tag, but the group bag limit still is limited to four trout per tag.
The trout lake (Lake No. 5) is open from 7 a.m. to sunset each day. Anglers, except residents younger than age 16, must have a Nebraska fishing license. All vehicles entering the park must have a park entry permit. Anglers possessing trout on any other lake at Two Rivers SRA must have a trout tag, as well. Anglers are allowed to use one fishing rod and reel each.
Two Rivers is located near Venice in western Douglas County. For more information, call the park at 402-359-5165.
