OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Starting Thursday, visitors to Fontenelle Park will be able to catch more than just a few zzz’s.

Nebraska Game and Parks will restock the lagoon with 300 hybrid bluegill and green sunfish at 11 a.m., according to a news release. Anyone can attend for free, and those who do will see fish shoot from a tank through a tube, right into the lagoon.

The restock Thursday is the first of three scheduled in 2021, according to the release. The second (200 channel catfish) is scheduled for September. The third (1,200 rainbow trout) will occur in October.

Fishing is strictly catch-and-release, and requires a permit from state Game and Parks.
