INDIANOLA – A family trout fishing event will be held at Banner Lake South at Summerset Park, north of Indianola, this Saturday, April 7 at 11 a.m. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will release 1,400 rainbow trout.

Anglers must 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 buy a trout fee which will allow them to catch their own limit of five trout.

The Warren County Izaak Walton League will provide a free lunch for approximately the first 100 anglers.

The free event is sponsored by the Warren County Izaak Walton League and the Iowa DNR.
