Get Out and Catch Trout! 10-inch Rainbow Trout Stocked Across Nebraska

The snow has melted, the weather is warming and even the birds seem to be signaling that spring is here to stay.

If this isn't enough to get you outside after a long, snowy winter, here is an added incentive: Nebraska Game and Parks has been stocking catchable sized rainbow trout in many Nebraska locations this month and has some additional locations coming up. A special Saturday stocking bonanza is planned in the central and southeastern part of the state.

Fishing for trout is an excellent family activity. Trout are relatively easy to catch and respond to a variety of baits, making them a popular option for beginning anglers. All you need is a basic rod and reel for tackle, and marshmallows, corn or nightcrawlers for bait. Prepared baits and small spinners can also be used. You can even break out your fly rod!

The dates and locations for this year's spring trout stocking include:

Beef Industry Is Alarmed By The EPA's Bureaucratic Overreach

Not long after taking office, President Obama ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to launch an aggressive regulatory agenda, including the imposition of economy-wide policing of greenhouse gas emissions. American agriculture, including the beef industry, is alarmed by the EPA's bureaucratic overreach, a rule-making that will stifle economic growth and vastly enlarge the size and reach of the federal government.

Last year, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) and other organizations sued EPA to block its new emissions rules.
