ODNR sent me this. Sounds like they're putting some PIGS in there AGAIN this year! Directions to Punderson are on the State Parks website. NEARLY 700 TROUT TO BE RELEASED AT PUNDERSON LAKE Release to take place November 23rd, 2004 AKRON, OH- To observe a local pre-Thanksgiving tradition, Punderson Lake in Geauga County will be stocked with approximately 650 catchable rainbow trout on Tuesday, November 23, 2004 according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. According to Phil Hillman, northeast Ohios Fish Management Supervisor for the ODNR Division of Wildlife, these trout are excess breeders from the London State Fish Hatchery. The trout range from about 16 to 28 inches long and weigh two to ten pounds. They are expected to arrive from the hatchery early in the afternoon on the 23rd.. Hillman explains that rainbow trout typically do not reproduce naturally in Ohio. Rainbow trout are a cold water species that in nature spawn in moving water over gravel or cobble substrate. In Ohio, there are few streams that support natural reproduction and no lakes, so the ODNR Division of Wildlife raises and stocks trout in many Ohio waters. In most lakes trout that are stocked usually dont survive the winter (if stocked in the fall) or the summer (for spring-stocked trout). Punderson Lake is an exception, however. Trout that have not been captured by anglers in this lake have been known to survive throughout the year, which is quite unusual. Fishing at Punderson Lake is open to people of all ages. The daily bag limit is five trout per angler with no size limits. For anglers ages 16 and older, an Ohio fishing license is required and can be purchased at one of many area license dealers or the Wildlife District Three office. The annual resident license cost $19.00. A one-day fishing license costs $11.00. Please be aware that Punderson Lake allows electric motors only for boating anglers.
