Default Trout Releases Scheduled to Begin on March 7

Trout Releases Scheduled to Begin on March 7 Posted on 3/3/2014 by Division of Wildlife

COLUMBUS, OH – More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released this spring at 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds, creating excellent opportunities for anglers all across Ohio. The first rainbow trout releases will be Friday, March 7, at Adams Lake in Adams County and Barnesville Reservoir No. 3 in Belmont County.

“By stocking these ponds, we hope to create an opportunity for anglers to be successful, especially young anglers that might be fishing for the very first time,” said ODNR Division of Wildlife Chief Scott Zody. “Trout fishing provides the ideal introduction to the outdoors for our children and can help foster a lifetime love of fishing.”
Many stocked locations will feature special angler events, including youth-only fishing, on the day of the scheduled trout release. Rainbow trout releases will take place across Ohio from March 7 - May 16. Contact the nearest wildlife district office for specific information. Additional information about trout releases is available at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE.

Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and measure 10-13 inches before they are released by the ODNR Division of Wildlife. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout.
Anglers age 16 and older must have an Ohio fishing license to fish in state public waters. The 2014-2015 fishing license is now available and is valid through Feb. 28, 2015. An annual resident fishing license costs $19. A one-day fishing license costs $11 for residents and nonresidents. The one-day license may also be redeemed for credit toward the purchase of an annual fishing license.
Ohio residents born on or before Dec. 31, 1937, may obtain a free fishing license where licenses are sold. People age 66 and older who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1938, and have resided in Ohio for the past six months are eligible to purchase the reduced-cost resident senior license for $10.

Licenses and permits can be purchased online at wildohio.com and at hundreds of participating agents throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found at wildohio.com.
Sales of fishing licenses along with the Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) program continue to fund the operation of the ODNR Division of Wildlife’s fish hatcheries. No state tax dollars are used for this activity. This is a user-pay, user-benefit program.

The SFR is a partnership between federal and state government, industry and anglers and boaters. When anglers purchase rods, reels, fishing tackle, fish finders and motor boat fuel, they pay an excise tax. The federal government collects these taxes, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers and disburses these funds to state fish and wildlife agencies. These funds are used to acquire habitat, produce and stock fish, conduct research and surveys, provide aquatic education to youth and secure and develop boat accesses

More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released spring 2014 in 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds. The first releases will be March 7 at Adams Lake in Adams County and Barnesville Reservoir No. 3 in Belmont County.

Rainbow trout releases will take place across Ohio from March 7-May 16, and the stocking of these public lakes and ponds are excellent opportunities for families to fish together. Fishing for catchable-sized trout is a great way to introduce young people to the outdoors. Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and measure 10-13 inches before they are released by the ODNR Division of Wildlife. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout.

I got turned on to that a couple of years ago, wouldn't miss it for the world. It's good for about 4 or 5 limits of fish. Good eating and fun to catch. I usually use a bobber set up and then cast a spoon. Man do they hit that spoon hard.

Rainbow Trout Stocking Dates Changed


Posted on 3/5/2014 by Division of Wildlife


COLUMBUS, OH – Ohio’s planned rainbow trout stockings at Adams Lake in Adams County and Barnesville Reservoir No. 3 in Belmont County are postponed.
Adams Lake and Barnesville Reservoir No. 3 remain ice-covered, and shorelines have been impacted by recent heavy snow. These are unsafe conditions for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife to stock trout.
Both lakes were scheduled to receive trout on Friday, March 7.
  • Adams Lake will now be stocked on Thursday, March 20.
  • Barnesville Reservoir No. 3 will now be stocked on Friday, March 21.

No other stocking dates have been changed at this time. More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released this spring at 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds. Additional information about trout releases is available at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE.
Many stocked locations will feature special angler events, including youth-only fishing, on the day of the scheduled trout release. Rainbow trout releases will take place across Ohio from March 7-May 16. Contact the nearest wildlife district office for specific information.
Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and measure 10-13 inches before they are released by the division. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.

My pond opened up last night. Was watching out the window today as the snow was flying and it was blowing like all get out. Here comes a flock of ducks bucking the wind and snow, trying to land on the pond. They made it and were joined shortly by 6 geese. pretty cool.

Road Conditions Affect Rainbow Trout Stocking at Monroe LakePosted on 3/18/2014 by Division of Wildlife
COLUMBUS, OH – The planned rainbow trout stocking at Monroe Lake scheduled for Thursday, March 20, has been postponed, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The stocking will now take place on Wednesday, April 9.

A slip in the access road is preventing the hatchery truck, as well as anglers, from reaching the lake. Weather conditions have not allowed these conditions to be improved yet, but work is scheduled to begin soon.


More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released this spring at 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds. Additional information about trout releases is available at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE.


Many stocked locations will feature special angler events, including youth-only fishing, on the day of the scheduled trout release. Rainbow trout releases will take place across Ohio until May 16. Contact the nearest wildlife district office for specific information.
