On Saturday morning, October 19, more than 3 dozen
Chapter members and their friends gathered at Grosjean Park in
Wooster to stock over 450 rainbow, golden (a rainbow strain)
and brown trout in a half mile stretch of Apple Creek. At the
same time litter was picked up and removed from the stream
Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon (20th), members
served as gillies to teach novice and beginning anglers how to
fish. Each day, 16 kids and adults learned how to cast a fly line,
fish Apple Creek, and for most, how to hook, play, land and
release the trout they caught. Saturday afternoon was cool and
wet with scattered showers but Sunday was a bright and sunny
day. Fly fishing students learned a lot with plenty of trout caught and
We appreciate the financial support provided by a grant
the Ohio Division of Wildlife Aquatic Education program, and as
always, cooperation and support from Parks and Recreation of
the City of Wooster.
The fish stocked in the stream are now proving wonderful fly
fishing opportunities for anglers who are arriving at Grosjean
Park in big numbers from all over northeast and central Ohio.
We especially appreciate that virtually everyone we have
encountered is practicing catch and careful release. Past
experience has proven that this practice sustains the fishery
the winter, spring and into the following summer months.
