MASON CITY | Family Ice Fishing Day is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 13, at Lester Milligan Park.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will be stocking rainbow trout at 11:30 a.m. to encourage family participation in ice fishing. The Mason City Recreation Department will furnish snacks.

The event is free but participants must be properly licensed.

If an adult has a valid fishing license and trout fee, children 16 and under will be covered; their daily limit is five trout.

Children under 16 who are not fishing with a licensed adult will need to pay a trout fee. 

Participants must bring their own ice fishing gear.

Another event for families -- a Kids Karnival -- is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Southbridge Mall.
