The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife will be stocking steelhead trout in the Vermilion River on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
Twenty-five thousand yearlings will be released at the Vermilion City Boat Launch. These fish were raised in the Division of Wildlife’s Castalia Fish Hatchery. The yearlings are 6-9 inches long when stocked, and will grow to a length of 18 inches by the end of their first year.
The Vermilion City Boat Launch is located one-half mile south of U.S. Route 6, off West River Road. A brief program will be included, and Division of Wildlife staff will be on hand to answer questions. The public is welcome.
