Should the early birds get not only get the worms but also the bulk of the trout at Crossroads, anglers can head to other nearby public waters in which the DNR has or will release the trout.

Trout were released at Mt. Gilead Lake at the state park there and at Quarry Park near Marion last Friday. Shelby’s Number 3 reservoir will also get trout today. Lamberjack Lake in Seneca County and Norwalk Number 1 reservoir will be stocked on April 16.
