Watch the fish being stocked and try to catch your first trout. The urban lakes trout program offers a “close to home” option for anglers across the state to experience trout fishing. These cool weather stockings provide easy-access trout fishing opportunities in areas that cannot support trout during the summer months. They are a great place to take kids to catch their first fish.
Anglers need a valid fishing license (age 16 and older) and pay the trout fee to fish for or possess trout.
Find more information about trout fishing in urban lakes on the DNR trout fishing webpage.
