DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has asked Des Moines officials to delay any measures to restrict fishing on the Des Moines river downtown.

The request followed plans for the city's Parks and Recreation board to vote next week on a proposal that would limit where people can fish along the river downtown.

Under the measure, fishing anywhere along the banks of the river within the city's Riverwalk would be prohibited, as would fishing from the Union Pacific Bridge and the new MLK Jr. Bridge. Fishing would still be allowed on the four downtown bridges at Grand, Locust, Walnut and Court.

Department of Natural Resources officials say they want enhance fishing opportunities, not remove them.
