Pretty Trout Stream on WOWT 6 Outdoors

For my Weekly Outdoor Report on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News, we’re heading to one of my favorite places in Nebraska to do some trout stream fishing - about three hours northwest of the metro area. Take a look at the photo below. Know where we’re going?

See how clear the water is in this pristine, spring-fed creek.

My wife Polly loves to fish it and catch rainbow trout which are stocked weekly!

Prized, wild brown trout thrive in this creek as well. I enjoy catching and releasing them!

Reminder, that if you’re unable to view the live broadcast of the report, video  replays of it can be seen here.
