CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – Instead of driving hours to Lake Erie to enjoy catching yellow perch, anglers can head to Lake Isabella here in town! Yellow perch will be stocked throughout the month of October.
The first stocking of fish will be Friday, October 8 around 10:30 a.m. with over 1,600 pounds of yellow perch. Stocking will also occur through the month until October 29. Perch rigs will be available at the Lake Isabella Boathouse.
Lake Isabella Boathouse will be open September 26 - October 31 daily from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and November 1 – 14 on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and weekends 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. A daily ticket is required to fish at Lake Isabella. The cost is $9.75 for ages 13 through 59. Kids and seniors fish free everyday! A valid Hamilton County Park District Motor Vehicle Permit ($5.00 annual; $2.00 daily) is required to enter the parks.
Also, catch a deal during Tackle Trade Days at Lake Isabella October 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A variety of new and used vintage lures, rods, reels and more will be available for the experienced and amateur angler.
Tackle Trade Days will showcase local fishing equipment vendors in a flea-market style setting. Anglers are sure to find that right fishing pole or lure from the large selection of bargain gear.
