Trout Stocking Adds Thousands of Fish to Wisconsin Waters
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Those hoping to catch a trout should have a little better chance of success.

State Department of Natural Resources officials hope to add nearly 330,000 trout to Wisconsin waters.

The trout should be planted before fishing opens next month.

DNR fisheries crews have been stocking rainbow, brown and brook trout raised at hatcheries.

Volunteers and students have been helping, too.

The crews are adding fish in waters where the habitat is marginal and there's no natural reproduction.

The season opener is May 4th.

Interactive maps of trout streams are available on the DNR website's inland trout page.

MINOCQUA - People drew designs and blood at a Minocqua tattoo parlor Friday. Owners of Haven Ink Tattoos helped clear up some tattoo myths while helping others in their community with a blood drive.
"Clients have been showing us tattoos they want while donating," said Haven Ink Tattoos co- owner and artist Megan Hunt.
A simple prick of a needle goes a long way at Haven Ink Tattoos in Minocqua.
"There are a lot of myths that exist and it goes back to old stimulations as far as donating blood," said Haven Ink Tattoos co- owner and artist Dani Bauer.
"[You can] participate in a good cause and get a tattoo after so you get two memories in a day," said blood donor Tanner Lillie. 

People get a permanent mark while making one on someone's life.
Hunt and Bauer teamed up with Talitha Uhrmann from The Community Blood Center to bring a blood bank to the shop. Everyone who donated blood got 20 percent off a tattoo.
Every person that donated blood can save three lives including the one in seven people hospitalized that will need a blood transfusion.
