City of Ottumwa Announces Trout Stocking


The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will be stocking 1,500 rainbow and brook trout in the pond on the east side of Wapello street by the orange and blue playground equipment on Friday, October 21st. All Iowa fishing regulations apply at the pond. There is a bag limit of 5 trout per day; the possession limit is 10. There is no fishing derby for this stocking. 

The Ottumwa Park Department has partnered with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to improve fishing in the ponds in Ottumwa Park. The Iowa DNR Fisheries Bureau has been involved in trout stocking in urban areas for over 30 years in an effort to introduce trout fishing to more anglers across the state. More information about fishing in Iowa, including licensing and the urban trout-stocking program can be found online at
