More than a hundred people lined the north lake boat ramp to get a chance to catch trout, just released by the Iowa DNR, 11/20/12. (Kevin Kane)
On a beautiful central Iowa afternoon, upwards of 80 fishermen and women and an equal number of onlookers waited intently for the DNR hatchery truck to arrive. Just before noon the truck pulled in and within minutes was pumping the north lake with enough trout to keep them all happy. The trout looked happy to be out of the truck as well as they literally jumped out of the water after gaining their freedom. It wasn't long before they were being pulled from the lake and shouts like "Grandpa, I got one!" were heard.
