April 28 is a busy day for eastern Nebraska anglers. Lake Wanahoo will open for the first time for fishing on that date, and there is a grand re-opening event scheduled for Zorinsky in Omaha.
Zorinsky will be open for fishing, but keep in mind that re-stocking following the zebra mussel elimination and rotenone renovation only started in the fall of 2011. Channel catfish, bluegill, largemouth bass, and black crappie were stocked last fall; redear sunfish were stocked in March 2012. A handful of largemouth bass and the 97 black crappies stocked into Zorinsky last fall were adult fish, but by far, most of the fish in Zorinsky are going to need at least a couple years to grow.
The good news is Zorinsky is on its way back and that is reason to celebrate! If you can make it to Zorinsky, take the kids, expect to have a good time and expect to learn something!
