Outdoor 411 for Mar. 25, 2012.
Trout location moved
The annual stocking of rainbow trout will be moved to White Oak Lake in Bloomington from the traditional location at Miller Park Lagoon due to continued low water after a construction project. Trout season begins April 7. No one is allowed to take trout before 5 a.m. that day. A trout stamp is needed. Daily limit is five fish.
Summer positions are available for teens ages 15 through 18 at Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge near Havana.

The YCC works on wildlife habitat improvement projects, refuge maintenance, trails, boundary posting, brush cutting and other outdoor work. Pay is $8.25 per hour for a 40-hour week.
