It’s time to stock your ponds

Apr 20, 2022 | Ottawa Outdoors | 0 comments

Buying fingerlings is a convenient and low-cost way to stock your pond or lake with fish, or add to your current population.  Fish orders will be accepted until Friday, May 6 by the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District. Fender’s Fish Hatchery will bring their tank truck, with aerator, on Thursday, May 19 from 1-2:30 p.m. to the SWCD office to distribute the fish orders.

This year, customers can order online at Individuals who order fish will be notified, reminding them of the pick-up time and date. Buyers will need to bring their own container, filled with pond water. A trash container (with a plastic trash liner) serves as an ideal container.  A clean 5- to 10-gallon can is adequate for 100 fish.

For more information or an order form call 419-898-1595 or email
