Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – July 6th, 2012

Lake Alma (Vinton County)

Good catches of bluegills can be reeled in using live bait, including wax worms and nightcrawlers. Largemouth bass can be caught using artificial baits, including jigs with Twister Tails and Rat-L-Traps. Try fishing the back side of this 74-acre lake and under the bridge. Electric motors only.

Hocking River (Hocking and Athens counties)

Smallmouth bass fishing is usually popular this time of year. The best smallie fishing tends to be in pools and near submerged structure, rocks, or root systems. Successful baits include minnows, Rooster Tails, soft craws and Twisters. Any of these can be effective when fished from canoes or the shoreline. Channel catfish can also be found throughout the river. Try using cut bait, bluegills and minnows.
