Northeast Ohio youth fishing area closed for Memorial Day weekend
Akron, Ohio — The popular youth fishing area maintained by the ODNR Division of Wildlife at its Akron office won’t open for Memorial Day weekend.
The youth fishing area is such a small space that it would be difficult to maintain proper social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement from District 3 of the Division of Wildlife.
Therefore, the area at the Portage Lakes will remain closed May 23-25.
The Akron office of the Division of Wildlife is still evaluating whether the fishing area will open later in the summer.
