Mosquito Lake (Trumbull County) – Anglers are catching walleyes this spring on this large Trumbull County lake, according to Vienna-area angler Mike Mainhart. A few walleyes have topped 16 inches and are being caught on soft plastics in orange. A few crappies are also being caught on Gulp minnows in chartreuse patterns.
Pymatuning Lake (Ashtabula County) – Anglers are catching a good number of yellow perch and crappies on this lake that spans the eastern border between Ohio and Pennsylvania. Crappies are coming in anywhere from 15 to 25 feet of water by anglers using minnows under a bobber or waxworms. Yellow perch are biting on the same baits, though they’re tending to be in shallower water.
Nimisila Lake (Summit County) – Anglers are using plastic swimbaits to entice the panfish bite from bluegills and crappies at this Portage Lake. Fish anywhere from five to 10 feet of water for the best bite. Minnows are taking fish, too, anglers report. Waxworms under a bobber would also be a good bet. There’s enough bluegills in this lake to keep a kid (or an adult!) busy for hours.
