FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The DNR stocked 200 trout in a pond at Shoaff Park on Saturday to get families outside together.

People of all ages were welcome to cast their lines. DNR staff gave fishermen helpful hints on how to catch, clean, and cook their own fish.

They also gave lessons in fly fishing.

The DNR said fishing is a simple, fun way to bring people together in Fort Wayne.

"It's important to get kids and families out, and doing activities outdoors, and getting them fishing, and just the family atmosphere is what we're trying to push," said Tyler Delauder of the DNR. 

Carter Harris, 7, attended the event. He said he only caught one thing, "A baby blue gill," but that he was having fun fishing with his dad.

The DNR said there are still plenty of trout left in the pond for anyone who wants to fish.
