COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (WOWO): The Indiana Department of Natural Resources wants you to catch some trout this month.

They are hosting a free family fishing derby in Columbia City on Saturday, April 16. The Trout Fishing Derby will be 9 to 11 a.m. at Morsches Park.

The event is free and you can participate even if you don’t have a fishing license or a trout stamp.

About 400 rainbow trout will be stocked in the park’s north end before the event starts. But you can’t cherry pick the fish beforehand: fishing won’t be allowed until the day of the event.

DNR staff will supply kids under 18 with poles, bait, and instructions, along with prizes for the best anglers.
