Northwest Oho Fishing Report – June 21st, 2013
Lake La Su An Wildlife Area Ponds (Williams County) – This fishery is intensively managed to maintain the harvest of large bluegills. All area lakes are open to public fishing on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays until July 29. No more than 15 sunfish may be kept per day for all La Su An area lakes, and no more than five of these may be 8 inches or more. Most anglers are having success catching the large fish, but finding it difficult to catch the fish less than 8 inches. Largemouth bass must be 18 inches or more to keep, with a daily bag limit of five fish. For additional rules and information, visit wildohio.com.
Lost Creek Reservoir (Allen County) – This reservoir is located on the east side of Lima, at the intersection of Reservoir Road and Roush Road. Anglers have been catching a mixed bag of saugeyes, crappies, rock bass, white bass, smallmouth and largemouth bass, and catfish. Try drifting or trolling worm harnesses and crankbaits. Anglers can also cast crankbaits from the shoreline. Anglers can use boats with electric motors; however, there is no boat ramp, so boats must be carried over the dike on the west side.
Wauseon Reservoir (Fulton County) – Located at the intersection of County roads 15 and C, this 50-acre reservoir has been producing some nice catches of saugeyes and white bass. For saugeyes, try casting along the shoreline or drift fishing. Bluegills have also been hitting crawlers on the bottom. The reservoir features a primitive boat ramp, so anglers are limited to small boats. In addition, only electric motors may be used.
Willard Reservoir (Huron County) – Bluegills are being caught at Willard Reservoir using wax worms under a slip bobber. Catfish are also being caught during the evening hours and after dark using nightcrawlers on the bottom. Limits of bass are being caught fishing the shoreline in the evening. The reservoir is located on State Route 61, two miles north of New Haven. There is a boat ramp available, but only electric motors may be used. A boat permit must be obtained from the city of Willard at City Hall. For maps and fishing forecast, visit the division’s website at wildohio.com.
