If you subscribe to NEBRASKAland magazine, http://www.outdoornebraska.ne.gov/nebland/subscriptions/nebland_subscribe.asp , you have already seen the new liftout that was included in the July 2012 issue, Fishing the Metro.
I want to mention this booklet here because I believe it was very well done by Jeff Kurrus, and because I believe it will be a very useful publication much like previous liftouts that NEBRASKAland has done (e.g. Trout Fishing in Nebraska’s Streams, Fishing Across Nebraska, http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/nebland/articles/fishing/I-80.pdf ) .
If you are not a NEBRASKAland subscriber, you should be, you soon should be able to find hard copies of the Fishing the Metro publication at our office in Omaha (1212 Bob Gibson Blvd, right across the street from the north entrance to the zoo), at Omaha area sporting goods stores, and at our headquarters here in Lincoln. Or, if you wish, you can go on-line and see a copy of it here, http://www.outdoornebraska.ne.gov/nebland/articles/July2012/pdf/FishingMetro.pdf .
Of course you all know that Omaha is by far the largest urban area in Nebraska. We sure could use more fishing waters and fishing opportunities in the Omaha area in particular and all of eastern Nebraska in general. At least this new booklet will let folks know what fishing opportunities there are in the Omaha metro area, and there are some good ones. Those of you who are not from Omaha may want to bring your fishing equipment along with you when you make a visit!
