A family trout fishing event will be held at Banner Lake South, near Des Moines, on April 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will release 1,400 trout around noon.

A free lunch will be provided by the Warren County Izaak Walton League for those who bring children to fish. The DNR will have a limited amount of fishing equipment on hand to borrow, if necessary.
