Illinois Trout Fishing Draws Families
MAHOMET--Spring trout season continued Sunday on more than 40 lakes throughout Illinois.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources stocks 40 lakes with more than 60,000 keeper sized trout from a farm in Missouri.
The program is funded by people purchasing trout stamps.
This program is more than 30 years old, and the IDNR says this gives people the opportunity to catch trout in Illinois. Which normally wouldn't be possible because the fish only survive in cold water.
People fishing Sunday say this is really a great opportunity to spend time with family.
