Ohio Trout Guide Trip



Season: Stream trout in Ohio can be caught year round.

Ohio Fly Fishing Guides offers professional guide service for Brown Trout here in Ohio. We offer guided trips for brown trout on both the Mad River near Dayton, and the Clearfork of the Mohican River near Mansfield. Our season runs year round and some of our best fishing occurs during the winter months.

Float Trips are available in our AuSable River or Hyde Drift boat on the Mad or Canoes/Kayaks on the Clearfork. Walk-in trips are also available at any time!

A Mad River Outfitters Staple. The Ohio Division of Wildlife stocks “catchable” rainbow trout (10-14 inches) during spring and fall in various lakes and ponds and brown trout (6-9 inches) during October in Clear Creek, Clear Fork River and the Mad River. Catchable rainbow trout are stocked to provide immediate fishing opportunities for a short period of time and these fish are expected to remain the size they were when they were stocked.

Habitat in Ohio waters generally prevents rainbow trout from surviving through the summer in these waters. Brown trout are stocked to provide longer-term fishing opportunities since they are stocked at smaller sizes and expected to survive a number of years after stocking.

Most anglers do not consider brown trout to be a harvestable size until they measure at least 12 inches. Trout fishing in Ohio is maintained solely through annual stockings since rainbow and brown trout are not native to Ohio and our habitats do not promote natural reproduction.

Season: Brown Trout in Ohio can be caught year round. Rainbow Trout can be caught from November to May.

How it works: When you purchase your trip here, our team will reach out with you to schedule and confirm a date for your guided fly fishing trip!

Who guides for Brown & Stream Trout: Katie Johnstone, Ryan Ratliff, Ben Phipps, Donnie Knight and Steve Pileski.
