2015 Fish Fingerling Sale

Fish Pick-up April 2, 2015

New Belmont County Fairgrounds 45420 Roscoe Road St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950

A properly stocked and managed pond will provide years of quality fishing. Stocking the proper kinds, sizes, and number of fish will start a pond in the right direction. Most Ohio ponds are ideal for largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish; and all three provide excellent fishing and fine eating. An initial stocking of a combination of these fish is usually recommended for new or renovated ponds. Properly managed largemouth bass and bluegill will produce self-sustaining populations, whereas channel catfish usually require periodic restocking. Other fish occasionally stocked include White Amur or triploid grass carp and redear shellcracker.
