Ohio 2014 Rainbow Trout Release Schedule Dates and Lakes

It is that time of year again.  Trout releases begin March 7 in Ohio Lakes!

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.

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.
