Northwest Oho Fishing Report – June 7th, 2013
Lake La Su An Wildlife Area Ponds (Williams County) – This fishery is intensively managed to maintain the harvest of large bluegills. All area lakes are open to public fishing on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays until July 29. No more than 15 sunfish may be kept per day for all La Su An area lakes, and no more than five of these may be 8 inches or more in length. Most anglers are having success catching the large fish, but finding it difficult to catch fish less than 8 inches. Largemouth bass must be 18 inches or more in length to keep, with a daily bag limit of five fish. For additional rules and information, visit the Division’s web page at www.wildohio.com.
Killdeer Plains Reservoir (Wyandot County) – Located 10 miles southwest of Upper Sandusky along State Route 67, Killdeer Reservoir features a new floating boat ramp and 241 acres of fishable water. Smallmouth bass should be biting this month. Try fishing the rocks along the island and the south shore. Cast the shoreline using crayfish or leeches under a slip bobber, set just off the bottom. Also, try casting dark colored tube jigs or crankbaits along the shore. Crappies should also be biting right now. Try fishing the south shoreline using live minnows fished under a slip bobber, or 1⁄8-ounce jigs with a twister tail tipped with a minnow. There is a 10-horsepower limit on the reservoir.
Bresler Reservoir (Allen County) – Located 4 miles west of Lima, 1 mile south of State Route 81 and 1 mile north of State Route 117 on Kemp and Grubb Roads, this reservoir is 582 acres in size. Bluegills should be biting right now. Anglers should try the east end of the north bank. Slip bobbers and jigs with wax worms usually work the best. Walleyes can also be found in the reservoir. Try fishing the shoreline drop-off along the edge, as well as around the underwater island. Drifting or trolling worm harnesses or crankbaits in the mornings and evenings usually produce the best results. There is a boat ramp located on the east side. Boats are restricted to electric motors only.
Muddy Creek (Sandusky County) – Catfish should be biting the next couple of months. Anglers can access the water at the State Route 53 bridge. The best successes have come from fishing chicken livers or cut bait tight-lined on the bottom.
