Rainbow Trout Stocking Dates

Young male with family showing the fish he caught

Over 80,000 rainbow trout are released every spring in public lakes and ponds across Ohio.

2022 Rainbow Trout Stocking Dates & Locations

Rainbow trout releases will take place across Ohio during March through May in 2022, as long as areas are ice-free and accessible to anglers. Stockings of these public lakes and ponds are excellent opportunities for families to fish together. 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. The daily harvest limit for inland lakes is five trout per angler.

** Indicates a special angler event is planned for the trout release.

Call 1-800-WILDLIFE (800) 945-3543 for specific information.
