Kids Can Fish for Trout at Pearson Next Saturday

Bring the kids to Pearson Metropark for a rare fishing opportunity this weekend – the chance to catch rainbow trout close to home.

The Ohio Division of Wildlife will stock rainbow trout in Pearson Lake, April 13. Saturday, April 14, will be reserved for kids under 16. After that, all ages are welcome to fish.

The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout.

All state licensing and other fishing regulations apply. Kids under 16 do not need a license.

Fishing for catchable-sized trout is a great way to introduce young people to the outdoors.

Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and measure 10-13 inches before they are released by the ODNR Division of Wildlife.
