Free mulch will be available
MASON CITY | The Cerro Gordo County roadside management staff will soon begin tree and brush removal efforts in county right-of-ways. Removal of trees and brush will this year be focused primarily within Clear Lake, Lake, Mason and Portland townships. Drivers are asked to use caution when approaching work zones.
Residents of Cerro Gordo County may request full loads of mulch by contacting the conservation board at 641-423-5309. Mulch will be delivered at no cost to dump sites in close proximity to work areas. Dump sites must be unobstructed and flagged to facilitate easy delivery.
Fall urban trout stocking begins Oct. 14
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will release between 1,000 to 2,000 rainbow trout at 17 urban lakes as part of its cool weather trout program that brings trout to areas that cannot support them during the summer.
The program is supported by the sales of the trout fee. Anglers need a valid fishing license and pay the trout fee to fish for or possess trout. The daily limit is five trout per licensed angler with a possession limit of 10.
Children age 15 or younger can fish for trout with a properly licensed adult, but they must limit their catch to one daily limit. The child can purchase a trout fee which will allow them to catch their own limit.
The Blue Pit in Mason City will be stocked, weather permitting, at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22.
