AMES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has stocked several lakes around the state with thousands of trout this month, including Ada Hayden Heritage Park Lake in Ames.

Officials dropped 2,000 rainbow trout into the lake, as well as Prairie Park Fishery in Cedar Rapids last week. Earlier this week, trout were place into Blue Pit lake in Mason City.

The trout range in length from 10 to 12 inches.

The stocking of the lakes is part of the Urban Lakes Trout Program, an effort to introduce trout fishing to more anglers across the state.

Trout were also released into 13 other Iowa lakes earlier this fall as part of the program.
