The long-range weather forecast for Friday points to highs in the 40s and a small chance of rain. But the four state parks will be stocked with more than 25,000 trout. About 8,600 anglers are expected to turn out. Governor Jay Nixon will be at Montauk Hatchery near Licking to fire the opening pistol.
