RAINBOW TROUT TO BE RELEASED IN OHIO WATERWAYS

COLUMBUS, OH -- Approximately 30,000 rainbow trout, measuring 10 to 13 inches in length, will be released into 27 Ohio waterways this October, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

Targeting inland waters, the annual fall trout stockings provide added recreational opportunities for Ohio's anglers.

"Fishing is a great family activity, these stockings provide an excellent opportunity for anglers of all ages to catch fish," said John Navarro, fisheries biologist with the ODNR Division of Wildlife. "You don't need a boat or expensive equipment in order to catch these lively trout."

The trout will be stocked in state park lakes, community park ponds and many other easy-access lakes throughout the state. Anglers age 16 and older must have an Ohio fishing license. Those anglers age 66 and older may obtain a free fishing license from any Ohio license vendor. The 2003 annual resident fishing license costs $15 and is valid through the last day of February 2004. A one-day fishing license may be purchased for $7. The one-day license may also be redeemed for credit toward purchase of an annual fishing license during the same license year.

Additional information about fall trout releases is available from ODNR Division of Wildlife district offices in Akron, Athens, Columbus, Findlay, and Xenia; or by calling toll free 1-800-WILDLIFE.
