LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Tiger trout have been a rare catch in the state but are becoming more common with stockings by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The fish are a hybrid of brown trout and brook trout. Thousands have been raised at a fish hatchery and are being stocked throughout the state. They can be identified by the wormlike scale patterns that cover their bodies.

The hybrids already have been released at Bessey Fish Pond in Thomas County, Blue Creek in Garden County, White River in Sioux County, Two Rivers State Recreation Area No. 5 in Douglas County, Lake Ogallala State Recreation Area in Keith County and Rock Creek Lake in Dundy County.

Plantings are scheduled at Alliance Golf Course Pond in Box Butte County and Wood Reserve Ponds in Sioux County.
