Ohio Trout Fishing

Recommended Posts

I've decided that I'd like to fish for trout sometime, so I'm here to ask you fine folk where good places to find trout are.  My internet readings have been the ODNR info which gives a few places that are stocked - http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/fishing/trout-stocking-dates

What I'd ask you folks is which of those are good (preferably the South East area, within an hour or two of Beverly [near Marietta]) to find trout.  I realize that we're still in the dog days of summer, so it's not a good time to try.  The ODNR says they also stock come Octoberish http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/fishing/fishing-tips-by-species/rainbow-brown-trout#tabr4

So, obviously this isn't something we'll be doing soon.  Thanks!

I'm from southwest Ohio and I've always been told that you can catch native brookies in the Mad River from Dayton to Urbana.  Clear Creek Metro Park near columbus has the Clear Creek running through it and I have buddies that have fly-fished there and caught browns. The southeast part of Ohio around Athens have some streams that have trout but the creeks are small, therefore very small fish. I have always wanted to try these places but I recently moved to Arizona and never got the opportunity. :( Hope this helps a little, and good luck!

I know it's further than your 1 to 2 hour limit, but if you ever make it up to the Cleveland area the steelhead fishing is fantastic on many of the rivers feeding Lake Erie.
