Page Eight Norwalk Resident Elected State Librarian for C.A.R ’ Submitted by Hoye Ella Brunia, rural Norwalk, 4th grade student at Irving Elementary School, Indi- anola, was elected State Librarian for the Iowa Society, Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R). The election took place during the annual state meeting on March 16th held at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown. Ella is a member of the local Tallgrass Prairie Society, C.A.R. in Des Moines.

N/Warren Town and County News Spring Trout Stocking The Iowa Department of Natural Resources fisheries staff will release between 1,000 to 2,000 rainbow trout in ten lakes across Iowa in March and April as part of its cool weather trout program. The spring urban trout stockings are a great place to take kids to catch their first fish. A small hook with a nightcrawler or corn under a small bobber to casting small simple spinners such as a panther martin or mepps is all you need to get in on the fun. Bringing trout to cities and towns offers a “close to home” option for Iowans who might not travel to northeast Iowa to experience trout fishing. Most locations also host a family friendly event to help anglers have success and fun while fishing. The popular program is supported by the sales of the trout fee. Anglers need a valid fishing license and pay the trout fee to fish for or possess trout. The daily limit is five trout per licensed angler with a possession limit of ten. Children age 15 or younger can fish for trout with a properly licensed adult, but they must limit their catch to one daily limit. The child can buy a trout fee which will allow them to catch their own limit. Once you buy your trout fee, you can fish for trout all year long at any of the community trout lakes and trout streams in northeast Iowa. Find tips on how to fish for trout on the DNR website at www.iowadnr.gov/trout. Iowa DNR will be stocking Banner Lake South, just north of Indianola, with rainbow trout at noon on April 6th.
