When Geauga Park District stocks the lakes and ponds for people to fish, where are all those fish coming from? Well, for many years it’s been High Water Fish Farm that has supplied those fish, and now we are also providing you an opportunity to visit the farm and see where they are raised!
This exclusive High Water Fish Farm Tour is scheduled for Saturday, June 24th, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Registration is required to participate, with the date subject to change based on the availability of the fish farmers. Activities will be partially wheelchair accessible and most appropriate for those school aged and up; please call 440-286-9516 with questions.
Geauga Park District stocked six waterways at four parks this spring:
- The West Woods’ Affelder Pond (Largemouth Bass & Bluegill)
- Walter C. Best Wildlife Preserve (Yellow Perch)
- Big Creek Park’s Wild Goose Pond & Chestnut Pond (Largemouth Bass)
- Beartown Lakes Reservation’s Lower Bear Lake & Middle Bear Lake (Largemouth Bass)
Real-time stocking notifications are always posted on the Park District’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Families are always welcome to catch and take fish from waterways in seven Park District parks as long as they have a current Ohio fishing license in accordance with state regulations. Location tips and the species of fish found there are posted at Geauga Park District under Things to Do, then Fishing.
Plans for later in the year also include the stocking this fall of Rainbow Trout at Beartown Lake Reservation’s Lower Bear Lake, as well as Largemouth Bass and Bluegill at Swine Creek Reservation’s Killdeer Pond.
