Southwest Ohio Fishing Report - January 4th, 2013

Posted on January 3, 2013

Paint Creek Lake (Highland County)

Anglers have had decent luck for saugeyes below the spillway using Twister Tails in red flake or pink. Crappies are being caught on black or blue tube jigs near the campground. Suspend either of the baits below a bobber at 4-5 feet. There’s also been a fair amount of duck hunting going on at the lake, with good numbers of mallards and gadwall in the mix.

Caesar Creek Lake (Warren County)

Anglers are catching crappies in 15 feet of water using minnows under a bobber and casting jigs. Look for any type of downed cover, particularly in the north end of the lake for the best bite. A few anglers are fishing for muskie at this Warren County lake, but reports indicate the bite has been slow. South zone duck hunters are also trying the lake, although there have been no reports of how they are faring.

Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County)

The crappie bite at Rocky Fork has been steady with anglers catching fish near the restaurant and boat docks. Most fish have been in the 7- to 9-inch range, with some up to 11 inches. The best area has been between Catfish Hollow and the island. Anglers are also picking up some saugeyes in this spot. The docks near the restaurant are always a sure bet for the crappie bite.
