Has anyone heard of the Trout Stocking is still going to happen next weekend?

I also hope that it is not cancelled.  The Lake Petocka stocking in Bondurant was cancelled last weekend despite an abundance of ice (for the second year running).  It feels a little bit like the DNR is giving us the shaft.  By advertising urban trout stocking in Central Iowa, they surely sell more trout stamps outside of NE Iowa.  Anglers that can't get up to the trout streams in NE Iowa (which admittedly are a great asset) are getting burned when they cancel urban trout stocking events.

DNR says petocka was postponed rather than cancelled. Hopefully that is true, I'd love to get on there a couple times before it thaws

Went up to Ada Hayden this morning for the Trout stocking. Great turnout. I have never been to one before so I don't know what to compare it to. I got out there about 10am, two hours prior to the start of stocking and it was packed.
Turned out to be a very good day on the ice. The action was hot and heavy starting at about 12:02pm.
Was anyone else there?

Yes, my first also, it was a full house.  Quite fun to watch all the little kids catching fish and getting excited. Everyone was battling the weather.  Saw a lot of real nice sized trout!

Great event. I will definitely attend next year if we are lucky enough to have enough ice.

Went out today again and caught a limit of Trout within 30 mins of being on the ice.
Threw all of them back to be caught again. Has anyone else been?

Has anyone been to Ada hayden this week? I was hoping to get out there Saturday or Sunday. Wasn't sure what the ice conditions would be like with the rain and warm temps.
