Park buys boatload of fish

What’s cold-blooded, scaly and costs about as much as a luxury car?

The live fish that will stock the pay fishing lakes in Hamilton County this year.

The Hamilton County Park District is ordering 21,800 pounds of live fish at a cost of $44,295 to stock the lakes throughout the fishing season.

The 2,500 pounds of Shovelhead/Blue Catfish ($2,500), 5,300 pounds of Rainbow Trout ($17,120) and 14,000 pounds of Channel Catfish ($24,675) will be used mostly to stock Lake Isabella in Symmes Township, said Jack Sutton, park district director.

The cost of the fish is included in the park district’s annual budget. Fishing fees help offset the cost, he said.
