Northeast Ohio Fishing Report – November 23rd, 2012
Deer Creek Reservoir (Stark County)
There is another very well known Deer Creek Reservoir located in Fayette and Pickaway counties, but this 314-acre lake is located in northeast Stark County. While it is typically an excellent largemouth bass fishery, fishing has been a little slow lately. Largemouth bass prefer areas with weeds, trees or other submerged objects and this is the first step for locating fish. Be patient, though, since the hawgs are biting here and there. Spinnerbaits are popular for shoreline anglers but run shallow as there are plenty of weeds. The lake has not been drawn down, so the launching from the primitive ramp should not be an issue for boat anglers. Wheelchair accessible shoreline fishing facilities are available. Access the lake from State Route 183 at Limaville and northwest of State Route 225.
Oberlin Upground Reservoir (Lorain County)
Bluegills and perch can be caught on very small jigs (1⁄32- to 1⁄64-ounce) tipped with maggots at this 56-acre reservoir southeast of Oberlin. Largemouth bass can also be caught on spinnerbaits or plastic worms. Boats are not permitted. Access this lake one mile east of U.S. 20 on Parsons Road
