Rainbow trout season opens Saturday
What are you doing this weekend? I have a couple of suggestions starting April 6. Get your fishing gear ready for the annual spring Inland Trout season that starts at 6 a.m. at the Hennepin Canal Parkway pond. This is sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and held twice a year, spring and fall.
To fish at the parkway on Saturday, you will need a current Illinois fishing license and an Inland Trout stamp unless you are 15 years old or younger. You need to purchase the license and stamp before coming to the parkway as they do not sell them on location.
Some people use different types of bait including red worms, waxies, corn, cheese and marshmallows. Others prefer to use small spinner baits. The take home limit will be five trout. One thing you can be certain of, it will be crowded. Please be courteous and safe around the rest of the anglers.
