Summerset State Park Family Trout Fishing Day
Posted: 03/27/2012
A family trout fishing day is planned for April 7, at Summerset State Park, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The event is free and the Warren County Izaak Walton League will provide a free lunch to families with kids present from 11 a.m. to noon.

Participants should bring appropriate fishing gear. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and help where needed.  The Iowa DNR will stock rainbow trout around noon.

Anglers age 16 and older will need to have a valid fishing license and pay the trout fee to fish for or possess trout. Children under 16 years of age may fish for and possess trout if they fish with a licensed adult who has paid the current trout fee and they limit their combined catch to the daily limit of five trout.

If the child wants to fish for and keep their own limit, they only need to purchase the trout fee.
Funding to support the stocking program comes from the sale of fishing licenses and trout fees.

The event is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Warren County Conservation Board and the Warren County Izaak Walton League.
