ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Fishing in Ohio has made a remarkable comeback since the 1960s. Lake Erie is now among the nation’s top walleye and smallmouth fisheries. Steelhead fishing on the central basin streams is as good as it gets, and improvements in water quality have revitalized sport fishing on the Ohio River. Ohio can boast one of the best muskie fisheries in the United States. The introduction of saugeye has brought quality Lake Erie–style walleye fishing to nearly every reservoir in the state. And Ohio streams have never provided a better catch of smallmouth, catfish, rock bass, sunfish, and trout.
Fishing Ohio is the only guide with fishing information for every public lake and stream in the state. Adding in reservoirs, rivers, tailwaters, and wildlife areas, more than 200 top sites are included. Brand-new, this book covers the state—by Wildlife Districts—from the steelhead streams in the northeast to the walleye spawning grounds in the western basin, with special sections on the Ohio River and Lake Erie. Each entry describes the water, its game fish, and where to find them, and provides angling tips as well as advice on boat ramps, access, marinas, lodging, local attractions, and regulations. This book uncovers the good fishing found in every part of the state. Not only does Fishing Ohio lead the way to a great catch or a great day of fishing, but it also talks you into going.
