Fishing gives you the opportunity to form special bonds with family and friends. Adventures on the water bring people together in a number of ways. When you share the thrill of a first catch or the stunning scenery of a new waterway, you form bonds with your fishing buddies that can last a lifetime.
Our most common question we are asked, "Is a fishing license required in the parks?"
A fishing license is not required to fish the Miami County Park District ponds., HOWEVER, a license is required if fishing in any of the rivers because they are owned by the State. You are able to keep any fish you catch from our ponds with the exception of bass which must be at least 14" to keep.
Parks that offer fishing ponds are: Garbry Big Woods Reserve - Maple Ridge Reserve - Stillwater Prairie Reserve - Twin Arch Reserve
Rivers and Creeks that flow through the parks due require a license and include: Farrington Reserve - FL Blankenship - Goode Reserve - Greenville Falls - Honey Creek Preserve - Lost Creek Reserve - Maple Ridge Reserve - Stillwater Prairie Reserve - Twin Arch Reserve and the Great Miami River Recreational Trail
