Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – July 18th, 2014

Hocking River (Athens and Hocking counties) – Smallmouth bass: Try the area of the river from Enterprise to Nelsonville, or at White’s Mill in Athens. The best smallmouth fishing tends to be in the pools and near submerged cover, rocks, or root systems. Successful baits include minnows, Rooster tails, soft craws, and twisters. Any of these can be effective when fished from canoes or the shoreline. Channel catfish: Try using cut bait, bluegill, and minnows. Target the rocky shorelines or woody debris in slack water. The eddy below White’s Mill in Athens is very popular, and shovelhead catfish can be caught there as well.
