DNR to stock Morsches Park in Columbia City, April 26
The Department of Natural Resources will stock 200 rainbow trout in the north pond at Morsches Park in Columbia City on Friday, April 26.
This is the sixth year the DNR has stocked the pond; however, the educational event that has traditionally happened the day after stocking has been canceled because the need has declined.
“We still want families to come out and have a good time, so we are continuing to stock the trout,” Delauder said.
The DNR is placing small, orange-colored plastic tags on 100 of the stocked trout to help count the overall number caught. Small canisters will be posted onsite for anglers to remove the tag and return them.
The limit will be five trout per individual angler.
The pond has open access for shore fishing as well as a fishing pier. A restroom facility will be open and ample parking space is available.
