Trout Stocking Adds Thousands of Fish to Wisconsin WatersSubmitted: 04/15/2013
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.

EAGLE RIVER - As the weather changes, some trails in the Northwoods need to be groomed.

The Three Eagle Trail runs more than 12 miles from Three Lakes to Eagle River. Volunteers are getting the trail ready for the spring and summer. Once snow melts, the trail has to dry before crews can clean it up.

"We do the cleanup in May, about the middle of May," said Three Eagle Trail Foundation President Tom Rulseh. "The trail is pretty dried out and started to firm up a little bit better. And then the grading we try the schedule in June."
