DES MOINES – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will release 1,400 rainbow trout in South Banner Lake at noon on April 2, in conjunction with a family trout fishing event sponsored by the Warren County Izaak Walton League.

The Warren County Ikes will provide lunch from 11 to noon.

Anglers who want to fish for trout are required to pay the trout fee in addition to having a valid Iowa fishing license. 

The daily bag limit for trout is five and the possession limit is 10.

Kids under 16 may fish without a trout fee, as long as each child is supervised by a properly licensed adult who has paid the trout fee.  Their combined catch, however, cannot exceed a single daily limit. Those younger anglers may also pay their own trout fee and fish for their own daily limit.
