Southwest Ohio Fishing Report – October 26th, 2012

Great Miami River (Miami, Montgomery, and Warren counties)

Smallmouth bass fishing can be excellent as the water cools and river conditions remain clear and stable. Look for areas with water deeper than 4 feet around bridge pilings, submerged logs and undercut banks. Try drifting a live nightcrawler or minnow fished under a bobber. Plastic crayfish or crankbaits in crawdad patterns are also effective.

Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County)

Saugeyes are being taken in 8- to 15-foot depths near the islands and along main lake points. Try trolling silver-colored crankbaits so that the lure occasionally bumps bottom. Largemouth bass can be found along rocky shorelines and near fallen trees. Cast jigs, rubber worms, and crankbaits for bass.

East Fork (Clermont County)

Crappies are being caught by anglers using wax worms, tube jigs, or medium to large sized minnows tipped on white or chartreuse jigs. Look for good crappie fishing off of points and back into the cove areas, as well as up and into Poplar and Clover creeks. Bluegills are hitting on wax worms and redworms. Keep the bait under a bobber around 2 to 3 feet deep. Cast anywhere around the docks, standing wood, or downed trees. Channel catfish are being caught by anglers using nightcrawlers fished along the bottom in the mouths of the creeks.
