Southwest Ohio Fishing Report - March 15th, 2013

Posted on March 14, 2013

Paint Creek Lake (Highland County)

The campground area of Paint Creek Lake is giving up good numbers of crappies, reports Leon Cole at Cole’s Bait and Tackle in Bainbridge. Successful anglers are suspending minnows by a bobber in five to eight feet of water. Black and chartreuse jigs tipped with a minnow are also working well. The absolute best bite, however, is coming on chartreuse jigs with red flakes tipped with a minnow.

Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County)

A few lucky anglers have zeroed in on the crappie bite here in recent weeks. Leon Cole at Cole’s Bait and Tackle reports a group catching 51 crappies in one outing, noting that none of the fish were smaller than nine inches. Anglers fishing around the island in 11 to 13 feet of water are seeing good results for crappies. Fish the humps in the lake for the best crappie bite. Fish are ranging a large 10 to 13 inches.
