    Catch 'Em While You Can!
    Location: Nebraska

    If the recent warm weather has you itching to get outside, we have the perfect reason: our annual round of spring trout stockings! Hatchery trucks have been out stocking catchable sized rainbow trout in many Nebraska locations this month and we have additional locations coming up, including this Saturday's stocking bonanza.

    Don't sneak off fishing by yourself either; trout fishing is a great family activity. Trout are easy to catch on a variety of baits, making them good for beginning anglers. Bait options include marshmallows, corn and nightcrawlers, but artificial flies and small spinners can also be used. Tackle is simple: a basic rod and reel, cane pole or a fly rod.
