COLUMBUS – State Representative Dick Stein (R-Norwalk) would like to highlight the Ohio Department of Natural Resources releasing about 80,000 coldwater rainbow trout into Huron and Lorain counties on April 4th and 5th.
These rainbow trout have been raised at the state's fish hatcheries and measure between 10 and 13 inches at the time of their release.
If you would like to get out on the water and test, your skills at our wonderful parks in the state of Ohio please purchase an annual fishing license at wildohio.gov.
On April 4, fish will be released at both Rowland Nature Preserve Lake and Walker Road Pond in Lorain County. Then on 5 April, we will see a release of fish at the Norwalk Reservoir #1 in Huron County.
“I encourage all of those in our community to get outside and try their luck at some of the wonderful parks in our communities,” said Stein. “The mission of the Ohio Division of Wildlife is to conserve and improve the fish and wildlife resources throughout our state and it is important that we do our part in enjoying the work done by the division.”
