A sure sign of spring is the release of the ODNR trout stocking schedule. Whether you agree in philosophy or not of this type of ‘put & take’ fishing, it is a lot fun and I always see plenty of kids attending the venues where this is done. It allows for some guilt free catch & keep, one of the few times of year where I smoke a good number of fish. The fishing can even be a challenge at times, proving for a little more sport than what one might expect.

Another announcement is the Castalia trout fishing lottery. The application process is only open until the end of March each year, so don’t delay. I have never been fortunate enough to win, but always am excited to apply for my annual denial.
