Fishermen flocked to Schoonover Park to try their luck with some fresh in the water fish.

Just over 1,200 catchable-size rainbow trout were released into the lake Thursday morning (4/12/18) and dozens of fishermen came out to reel in some of the action. Fisherman Jerry Resch says that regardless of his personal luck with the trout, good weather and a nice lake makes for a good fishing day.

"I've heard about this place, I heard it was clean and it is clean, it's a nice lake," says Resch. "I come out here today to try and see if I can catch my limit of trout, however, I'm having a hard time catching my first one. If I can just get it on my hook, we'll be alright."

A little over 100,000 rainbow trout will be released by the Ohio Department of Nature Resources Division of Wildlife across the state this spring. Fishing at an inland lake like Schoonover has a daily catch limit of 5 trout.
