The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will release 1,500 rainbow trout in Sand Lake, at 11:30 a.m., Nov. 18. This is a first time the Iowa DNR has stocked trout in Iowa City.
Anglers will need to have a valid fishing license and pay the trout fee to fish for or possess trout. The daily limit is five trout per licensed angler with a possession limit of 10.
Children age 15 or younger can fish for trout with a properly licensed adult, but they must limit their catch to one daily limit. The child can purchase a trout fee which will allow them to catch their own limit.
