Rainbow trout stocked in three eastern Nebraska lakes

Additional rainbow trout have been stocked by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission in three eastern Nebraska lakes to enhance winter fishing opportunities.

Standing Bear Lake in Omaha was stocked with 7,500 trout on Dec. 17. Holmes Lake in Lincoln and CenturyLink Lake at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park near Ashland were stocked with 3,000 and 3,500 trout, respectively, on Dec. 18.

Game and Parks considered the ice on all three lakes to be unsafe at the time of stocking. Game and Parks recommends the minimum ice thickness for supporting one person be at least 4 inches of clear, solid ice.
