We recommend that you obtain fish for stocking your small lakes or impoundments from a licensed fish propagator. Obtaining them from a licensed fish propagator is the easiest, most economical method, and you are guaranteed the correct size, numbers, and species of fish you request. The following list of fish species shows the fishes that are recommended for stocking into small impoundments or are popular for intensive fish culture in Ohio. Please consult our Ohio Pond Management book for guidelines on pond stocking and management to insure many years of quality fishing. Note that rainbow trout is a coldwater species and will not survive the summer in most Ohio waters. The fish propagators are listed alphabetically by county.
