Iowa DNR postpones trout stockings in Mason City and Sioux City – Outdoor News

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is postponing the trout stockings scheduled for this Saturday, Jan. 13 at Blue Pit, Mason City, and Bacon Creek Lake, Sioux City, due to unsafe ice conditions.

The stockings will be completed after the ice thickens. A press release will announce when the stockings have been completed.

The family fishing event also scheduled for this Saturday at each location has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.

Upcoming trout stockings are still on schedule with significantly colder weather in the forecast. Winter storms this week may slow ice formation by insulating the ice with snow. Check the DNR Trout Fishing website for more information.
