MAKE TIME FOR KIDS, TROUT by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

Parents, take advantage of those windows of opportunity when your kids have it available as well as nice weather and go fish with them for stocked, pan-sized rainbow trout!

Hey, my 12-year old son Noah and I did just that this week on Monday when he was off school for parent-teacher conferences. What a fantastic time we had, just me and him, with no interruptions!

 Here are some trout he caught at Benson Park Lagoon in Omaha, NE.

Noah wants me tell you that the stocked trout “went bananas” for garlic-flavored salmon eggs! Besides Noah’s salmon eggs, pack some Powerbait and corn in your bait bucket, plus I would recommend using light or medium-action tackle, plus small hooks and weights to catch these nice rainbows! You don’t need fancy fishing gear!

  Alright Noah, forget smelling like fish, how do we get that garlic-flavored scent off your clothing … hmmm?

Fisherman,hunter,outdoorsman, Noah does it all with his Dad. What super Rainbow Trout(My favorite fish), and it is always intersting to
know what the bait was. Keep up the good Father/Son relationship and Fishing. I Love it!! Seeing is believing!

Sounds to me, er, make that “smells” to me like all you have to do is add a little lemon scent to the mix and it would smell like trout for supper!

Excellent photos, love to see the kids catching fish!
