Rivers & Creeks
Our rivers and creeks offer prime fishing spots. Fishing licenses are required to take fish from all Ohio waters except ponds and reservoirs on private property from which fish do not migrate (see parks listed above). Anglers must carry their license with them when fishing. Licenses, which can be purchased online from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, are available for residents and nonresidents and range from one-day to annual permits.
Let’s not assume you can’t go fishing because you don’t know how to fish. Fishing is something everyone can do and learning to fish is the best part — and easier than you think!
Fishing is not a dangerous sport, but you should prepare to keep safe in the outdoors.
