Trout lottery and spring stocking dates

CASTALIA, OH – It’s that time of year again when the ODNR releases Rainbow Trout (10 to 14″) throughout Ohio.  This is a ‘put & take’ type fishery that can be a lot of fun.  I’ve actually managed some larger fish, possibly a few brood stock released or the inadvertent carry over that isn’t expected to happen.  Dates/locations … Continue reading

Christmas hangover at Wallace Lake

Christmas hangover at Wallace Lake

A nicely colored Wallace Lake Rainbow Trout BEREA, OH – When I recently posted my “Year end recap…” I fully expected that I would not get to fish in the last few days of 2015.  Surprisingly, the unseasonably mild weather and some other favorable circumstances found Bryce and I fishing at Wallace Lake the day … Continue reading

Casting for shoreline Steelhead

Casting for shoreline Steelhead

Lake Erie Shoreline, OH – There are many patterns or specific seasonal efforts fisherman can try on Ohio’s north coast.  In the fall, this includes targeting Steelhead that stage in and around the mouths of tributaries before committing to their upstream migration.  Many of these areas have public access in the form of piers/parks, and they become dotted with anglers hoping … Continue reading

Making the most of little time

Making the most of little time

Time is a commodity I don’t have much of these days.  Between a demanding career and family, fishing has been few and far between in 2015.  Along with very limited outings, getting the time to even do a brief write up has proven difficult.  On the up side, when I have made it out I … Continue reading

Trout Derby at Wallace Lake

Trout Derby at Wallace Lake

I have to say NE Ohioans are a hardy ‘hearty’ bunch (Valentine’s Day pun intended).  A rather dire forecast of temps, wind, and snow did not discourage the masses from participation in an ice fishing trout derby to benefit the Cleveland Metroparks Fishing Fund.  Still somewhat new to NE Ohio and not knowing what to … Continue reading

An unofficial record trout in Idaho

An unofficial record trout in Idaho

It’s not that often that I post stories from outside of Ohio or the expanded Great Lakes Region.  When I came across a ‘jaw dropping’ photo of an enormous Rainbow Trout in a recent news feed, I knew I would be making an exception.  Take a look for yourself; Larry Warren with his 32 inch, … Continue reading
