I’ll be traveling from Poland to Ohio early Dec, and plan to spend a weekend trying to pursue steelhead on a fly. Most likely it’ll be Ashtabula river. It’s going to be my first trip to the US, so I am completely unaware of formalities I need to fulfill, like where I can get the licences how much they are, can I get those on line, what restrictions I need to respect? Would you be able to advise on the above or point me to any website or a local club member, that would provide clarification?

Many thanks,
Adam, Poland

Hi Adam,
Great to hear you will be visiting the US to fish! Ohio fishing regulations can found on the Ohio DNR website here. You can purchase a fishing license online, just click the “License Information” link. You will need your passport for identification to complete the purchase.

There are no tackle limitations when fly fishing for Steelhead in Lake Erie Tributaries including the Ashtabula, except snagging is not allowed. You can download a copy of the Ohio Fishing Regulations handbook here.

Let me know if you need any further information and I hope you have a great time!
