Northeast Oho Fishing Report – June 7th, 2013
Mogadore Reservoir (Portage County) – Anglers are enjoying an aggressive bluegill bite at Mogadore. Most anglers were catching them in deeper water with the weekend’s cooler temperatures, but with temperatures in the 80s forecasted for the rest of the week, it might be wise to look shallower. Colored pin-mins tipped with a maggot or wax worm under a bobber should keep you busy. If bluegills move in shallower, consider trying a fly rod with small foam ants or little poppers for non-stop action.
Cuyahoga River (Summit County) – The Cuyahoga River runs through the Cascade Valley Park Chuckery Area, which is part of the Metro Parks Serving Summit County. A short walk from the parking lot to the river puts you on instant smallmouth bass action. You can fish either upriver or downriver from that access point. Waders are ideal for really working the river over. Tubes and crankbaits mimicking minnows and crayfish have been producing nice catches of smallmouths with a bonus pike here and there.
Tappan Lake (Harrison County) – The white bass bite is firing up. Anglers are catching exceptional quality fish around the dam. Live gizzard shad have been a hot bait, while crankbaits are also delivering consistent action. Crappies continue to be taken on minnows and jigs near shore, and wax worms under a bobber are producing sunfish. The bass bite has picked up somewhat, with soft plastics producing some good fish along the shoreline.
