Re: Hello from SW Ohio
I am from the Lima, Ohio area. Caught my first trout on the Mad River near the ski area when it used to be a put-n-take rainbow stream. I was able to get back that way during the first week of May, and had a pretty good day on the Mad at West Liberty and further downstream near Urbana. I was surprised to catch 2 rainbows at W. Liberty as I didn't think they stocked them anymore, only brown trout. I always enjoyed fishing the Mad, and canoeing on it as well. This was the first time I had caught trout with a fly rod there, as I was a spin fisherman until after I left Ohio in 1998. Hopefully, it won't be another 8 years before I get to fish the Mad. I am trying to move closer to home so I can visit my family more often and do more stream fishing for trout and smallmouth.
