COLUMBUS, OH – Catchable rainbow and brown trout were released today at Malabar Farm in Lucas as part of a pilot project to evaluate both species’ suitability for future stockings in the area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The Inn Pond across from Malabar Farm Restaurant received 300 rainbow trout, and Switzer Creek on Malabar Farm State Park property received 400 brown trout. Both locations are spring fed, and biologists believe the water may be sufficiently cool to support year-round trout fishing opportunities. Stockings will continue in these locations if the trout find the area suitable for continued success.
