April 12, 2014 - Today is a day anglers have been waiting for all year long: opening day for trout fishing.

Hundreds of fishing lovers -- both young and old -- stopped by Presque Isle today for a free day of trout fishing.

The ponds were stocked with roughly a thousand trout, and equipment was donated and lessons were given to kids on how to fish, although park officials tell us the fish were a little hard to catch.

This free day of fishing happens each year, thanks to the S.O.N.S of Lake Erie, DCNR, and BAC Bait and Tackle.
