Hatchery to remain open to Trout Fishing Lottery permit holders
COLUMBUS, OH - Beginning August 1, the Castalia State Fish Hatchery will be temporarily closed to visitors and tour groups. The temporary closure will run through September 11, 2011, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
The closure is necessary to ensure public safety during the construction phase of a new trout production building, which will increase trout rearing capacity at the facility.
Castalia Trout Fishing Lottery permit holders will still have access to Cold Creek on their assigned fishing date throughout the facility closure.
