Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – March 29th, 2013

Wills Creek Lake (Muskingum and Coshocton counties)

This 900-acre lake near Maysville will give up crappies, bluegills and saugeyes early in the spring. When the weather warms, try for them with jigs and wax worms or simply wax worms under a bobber. The best bait for saugeyes right now are Smithwick’s Rattlin’ Rogues in a variety of colors. Best bets are Blueback herring, gold, emerald shiner and golden shiner. A few largemouth bass are also being caught in shallow water, reports Bob Mathie at Bob’s Outdoor Supply. Target shoreline areas for pre-spawn bass. “They (anglers) have not gotten any trophies, but they’re catching some,” Mathie said of the bass bite.

Dillon Lake (Muskingum County)

Crappies are being caught now below the spillway, reports Bob Mathie at Bob’s Outdoor Supply. Anglers are also fishing for them on the small pond that is on public land just off the lake. Fish have ranged from 10 to 12 inches. Fish for them in the area of the main marina and anywhere around brush or logs. Fish shallow and probe the areas to find the fish. Catfish, too, are being caught off the point of the swimming beach, Mathie reports.
