COLUMBUS, OH - Public fishing opportunities will be enhanced this spring when more than 80,000 rainbow trout, measuring 10 to 13-inches long, are released into 45 Ohio lakes and ponds from mid-March through mid-May, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. Anglers are reminded that 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.

Persons age 66 and older who were born on or after January 1, 1938, and have resided in Ohio for the past six months, are eligible to purchase the reduced cost Resident Senior License for $10.
