Illinois Restocking Ponds With Rainbow Trout

By  | 

DIXON (AP) -- Workers with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources are restocking dozens ponds across Illinois ahead of next month's trout fishing opener.

Crews deposited about 3,800 rainbow trout into a Centennial Park lake on Tuesday. The agency added more than 1,500 trout to the Lake of the Woods near Mahomet.

Across the state, the wildlife agency is adding about 60,000 rainbow trout to 46 sites.

The spring trout season opens April 5.

Anglers need an Illinois fishing license and an inland trout stamp.
