Trout to be Stocked

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Big Daddy, Sep 16, 2004.

  1. Here's the release from ODNR. Have fun.


    COLUMBUS, OH -- Approximately 25,000 rainbow trout, measuring 10 to 13 inches in length, will be released into 25 Ohio waterways this October, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

    "These stockings target inland waters and provide additional fall fishing opportunities around the state," said John Navarro, program administrator with the Division of Wildlife.

    The trout will be stocked in state park lakes, community park ponds and many other easy-access lakes throughout the state.

    Anglers age 16 and older are reminded they must have an Ohio fishing license. Anglers born on or before December 31,1937 may obtain a free fishing license from any Ohio license vendor. The 2004 annual resident fishing license costs $19 and is valid through the last day of February 2005. A one-day fishing license may be purchased for $11. The one-day license may also be redeemed for credit toward purchase of an annual fishing license during the same license year.

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

    yea that sucks! I guess I will go down to Petros lake. I am going to bring my 5 year old girl to catch some. She has caught a few fish (with help) before, a couple rockbass, perch and blue gill. would like to see her catch a trout, come to think of it...I would like to see ME catch a trout. I have never caught one. What rig and technique should I use, for the both of us? I have some little mini foo jigs, small red hooks, and floats from my failed steel head trip this last march.

    Heres just a suggestion. (Use the steelhead stuff.)

    Kids 2:

    1. powerbait (pink is good) on one of those red hooks you mentioned. About a foot or two off the bottom 15'-30' out. Just enough to cover the hook and 1-2' above the smallest sinker she/you can get away with.
    **Note: a lot of times the trout swallow this before the hook can be set**

    2. mini foo jig (black is good) and maggot under a float 2-3' deep 15'-30' out. (You can also use a very small (pea size) ball of powerbait instead of a maggot)

    Your 2:

    1. small spinner (like a rooster tail) tipped (or not) with a peice of redworm for scent.

    2. (same as kids #2)

    Good luck, I wish I could see the kid when she catches her first. :)
