Ottumwa Preps for Annual Fishing Derby

By Ellis Codjoe, March 25, 2019

This upcoming Saturday, the Ottuwma Park Pond will be full of fish.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will be stocking some 2,000 rainbow trout in the local pond for the Trout Fishing Derby. The event will be held from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Anglers will be given awards for tagged fish, including one grand prize for the largest trout caught. Tagged fish can be redeemed for prizes next to the old bath house building in Ottumwa Park.
