The Johnston Parks Department and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources released 2,000 rainbow trout and a few broodstock trout into Terra Lake on Friday, April 8. The broodstock trout averaged between three to five pounds and the 2,000 trout were around 10″ in length.
Before fishing, anglers must be properly licensed, have a trout stamp, and bring their own fishing equipment. 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 their daily limit is one. However, children can buy a trout fee, which will allow them to catch their own limit.
