Central Ohio Fishing Report – August 29th, 2014

Kokosing River (Knox County) – Part of Ohio’s first water trail, this stream provides a good day on the water catching smallmouth bass and rock bass. Smallmouth bass: Use small tubes or crankbaits in crayfish or shiner patterns around woody cover, boulders, and eddies. Rock bass: can be caught in the same areas with the same baits as smallmouth bass. Channel catfish: can be caught in deep pools using shrimp, nightcrawlers, and prepared baits.

Rush Creek Lake (289 acres; Fairfield County) – Channel catfish: can be caught in this lake east of Lancaster. Use cut shad, shrimp, or nightcrawlers fished in east or south ends for best results. Bluegill: are providing some action around cover in the east end. Use waxworms or redworms fished under a bobber. Largemouth bass: are also being caught here on spinnerbaits; target the woody cover in the southern part of the lake. Largemouth bass must be 15 inches or longer to keep. There is a 10-horsepower limit on the lake.
