Agency plans winter release of trout in 7 spots

DES MOINES — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources plans to release trout in seven spots around the state this winter.

The program, which is financed by trout fishing fees, places the fish in areas where they couldn’t survive in warmer months.

The trout will be released Jan. 10 in Fort Dodge’s Moorland Park and Big Lake West in Council Bluffs.

On Jan. 18, the fish will be released at Blue Pit in Mason City and Bacon Creek in Sioux City.

Trout will be released Jan. 25 at Lake Petoka in Bondurant and at Spencer’s Scharnberg Pond.

On Feb. 8, fish will be released at Ada Hayden Pond in Ames.

Anglers must have a fishing license and have paid a trout fee.
