WARREN — "Fishing University," an Emmy Award-winning program, will be in Trumbull County this week to shoot an episode for 2021.
According to Trumbull County Tourism, Mosquito Lake and local dining, activities and attractions will be featured in the episode that begins shooting on Thursday (Sept. 24).
The film crew, along with hosts Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier, will be here to fish and film.
"Fishing University" airs on World Fishing Network as well as the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.
“When 'Fishing University' reached out to us with this opportunity, we knew it would be a natural fit,” said Beth Kotwis Carmichael, executive director of Trumbull County Tourism. “We will not only be able to put a spotlight on the world-renowned fishing opportunities in our region, but also feature the community, culture and activities that guests can experience while visiting.”
Within the 30-minute episode, a 90-second spot on Trumbull County will be included.
“We are proud to welcome 'Fishing University' to Trumbull County,” Carmichael said. “Coverage such as this will be seen by an audience of anglers that travel and have expendable income which will be good from both a branding and economic impact perspective.”
The competitive fishing show, beginning its 34th season, offers how-to tips and tricks of the trade, making it popular among competitive amateur and professional anglers.
