Portage Lakes (1,190 acres; Summit County) – All lakes in this system have a 400-horsepower limit. All areas are “no wake” except for portions of Turkeyfoot Lake and East Reservoir. Largemouth bass: Anglers are finding fish offshore. They are catching some nice sizes in the 3- to 4- pound range in deep water while using crankbaits.
Highlandtown Lake (187 acres; Columbiana County) – Boat launching ramps and latrines (seasonal) are situated at two locations on the north side of Highlandtown Lake. Boats with motors of 10 horsepower or less are permitted on the lake. Sunfish: Palm-sized bluegills are being caught in seven to eight feet of water from shore by anglers using waxworms or red worms on small hooks under a bobber. Anglers are finding success while fishing known sunken fish attractors. These locations can be found on the Highlandtown Lake map at www.wildohio.gov.
