    SPRING TROUT RELEASE WILL PROVIDE FISHING OPPORTUNITY AROUND THE STATE



    COLUMBUS, OH -- More than 80,000 rainbow trout, measuring 10 to 13 inches, will be released in 45 Ohio lakes and ponds from March through May to enhance public fishing opportunities, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout per angler.

    Some of the trout locations will feature special, youth-only angler events the day of the scheduled release.

    “Fishing is a family activity that brings many Ohioans hours of enjoyment,” said John Navarro, fish hatchery administrator for the ODNR Division of Wildlife. “These releases provide anglers of all abilities a chance at a great catch.”

    Anglers age 16 and older must have an Ohio fishing license in order to fish the state’s public waters. The 2005-2006 fishing license can be purchased now and is required on March 1. An annual resident fishing license costs $19 and is valid through February 28, 2006. A one-day fishing license is available and may be purchased for $11 by residents or non-residents. The one-day license may also be redeemed for credit toward purchase of an annual fishing license.

    Resident anglers born on or before December 31, 1937 may obtain a free fishing license where licenses are sold. Persons age 66 and older who were born on or after January 1, 1938 and having resided in Ohio for the past six months are eligible to purchase the reduced cost Resident Senior License for $10.

    Additional information about spring trout releases is available by calling an ODNR Division of Wildlife district office in Akron, Athens, Columbus, Findlay, and Xenia, or by calling toll free 1-800-WILDLIFE.

  4. My kids have been asking when we were going to catch trout. I will be setting on a bank of Clark lake with the two kids in March. Thanks for the notice, been waiting for this.
     
  5. Thanks for the info. I'll be anxious to try out the new 6.6 light action rod out for some rainbows. The fast tip whousd give me some extra casting distance. With Stroud's Run right outside of Athens, I'll be making some trips out between classes!
