Why do we Stock Trout?

By stocking these water areas throughout the state, opportunities are created for anglers of all ages to get out and enjoy quality spring rainbow trout fishing in a family-friendly environment. Many stocked locations will feature special angler events, including youth-only fishing on the day of the trout release. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout per angler.

Before you go, make sure you have your fishing license! https://oh-web.s3licensing.com/

Sales of fishing licenses along with the Federal 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. Thank you to all fishing license buyers for making these opportunities possible.
