An Ohio fishing permit is generally necessary to fish at Lake LaDue in Auburn, Ohio, as per state law. The law states that a fishing license is required to remove fish from Ohio waters unless the fisher privately owns the body of water.
Exceptions to the fishing permit law apply. Individuals under the age of 16 may fish in Lake LaDue and other Ohio waters without a permit. Fishing is also legal for all fishers at Lake LaDue on specified Ohio free fishing days. Fishing without a permit is also legal for all active-duty U.S military service members on leave.
