Kasich in town for Fish Ohio

Gov. John Kasich kicked off the 34th Governor’s Fish Ohio Day by joining anglers for a day of fishing on Lake Erie Wednesday morning. Fish Ohio Day promotes the positive impacts of Lake Erie sport fishing and tourism on the region’s economy. Ohio has an $800 million sport fishery industry and a $10 billion tourist industry. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife was a sponsor of Fish Ohio Day as well as Lake Erie Shores and Islands-West and the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association. Nineteen charter boats participated in the event this year.
ODNR Director James Zehringer joined the governor in fishing on Lake Erie today. Zehringer reinforced that Lake Erie is not only important to northern Ohio, but to the entire state. He shared that Lake Erie fisheries have been sustained for decades, and Kasich and ODNR are committed to ensuring Ohio’s fisheries are sustainable for the future.
