JOHNSTON, Iowa -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will stock trout at 1:00 p.m. on Oct. 24 at Terra Lake, as the trout program’s community fisheries, expands its central Iowa stockings to Johnston.

Terra Lake, a new lake owned by the City of Johnston, is in Terra Park at 6300 Pioneer Parkway.

Lake Petocka in Bondurant, Banner Lake near Indianola and Ada Hayden Heritage Park Lake in Ames will also be stocked this fall. Check the fall community trout stocking calendar at for dates and details.

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.
