Anglers 15 and under can fish on Saturdays in August at the designated Youth Fishing Pond at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.

Loaner equipment and bait will be provided, and a Division of Wildlife staff member will be available to assist, all free of charge thanks to the purchases of Ohio fishing licenses and federal contributions from the Sport Fish Restoration Fund.

Only youth age 15 and under are allowed to fish in the pond located around the Sportsmen’s Migratory Bird Center. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Young anglers may catch as many fish as they want, but they may keep only 6 channel catfish per day.
