Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – June 8th, 2012
Killdeer Plains Pond #30 (Wyandot County)
This pond is located southeast of Harpster, off Township Highway 125. Just south of the railroad tracks, turn west and follow the gravel lane back to the pond. Sunfish can be caught this month along the north and west banks. Try using wax worms or redworms fished under slip bobbers. No ramp is available; however small boats may be used. There is a 10-horsepower limit. Wading is also popular along the east and south shores.
St. Joseph River (Williams County)
Catfish, crappies, and largemouth bass can be caught in the river this time of year. The river is accessible at the bridge on County Road R, west of State Route 576 on Lake La Su An Wildlife Area. For largemouth and crappies, try fishing with wax worms and minnows under a slip bobber. For catfish, try using chicken livers tight lined off of the bottom.
Willard Reservoir (Huron County)
Bluegills and catfish are biting now at the reservoir, which is located on State Route 61, two miles north of New Haven. Anglers have been having the best success on the west bank. Try fishing for catfish with worms on the bottom. For bluegills, try using worms fished under a slip bobber. Anglers can fish from shore or from a boat. 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.
Wayne Carr Lake (Paulding County)
This 15-acre lake located on County Road 11, just a half mile south of County Road 424, should be producing nice bluegills the next two months. The best fishing is usually along the shoreline using wax worms fished under a bobber. There is a public use boat ramp available, but boats are restricted to 10-horsepower motors. In addition, there is a 10-fish daily limit on bluegills and an 18-inch minimum size limit for bass on the lake.
