Clear Fork Reservoir (971 acres; Richland and Morrow counties) – Clear Fork is one of the eight lakes stocked with muskellunge in Ohio. However, the reservoir has good populations of largemouth bass and bluegill as well. Bluegill: fishing should be excellent this time of year with fish ranging from five to seven inches, with an occasional nine-inch fish being taken. Try using waxworms, or worm pieces fished under a bobber along the edges of weed beds. Largemouth bass: fishing should also be excellent right now. Try using jigs tipped with pork, fished near structure located on the bottom. Shore fishing is allowed only along the south and west shorelines from the Orewiler Road bridge to a point 1,000 feet upstream of the dam. There are no motor size restrictions, but an 8 mph speed limit is enforced by the city of Mansfield.
Killdeer Plains Pond #33 (Wyandot County) – Now is a good time to try for largemouth bass: Anglers usually have the best success early in the morning along the south dike and on the fishing piers. Try fishing with a jig and pig slowly off points, logs, and other structure, or casting buzzbaits over weedbeds. The pond has a boat ramp with a floating dock. Boats are limited to 10-horsepower motors. Shore fishing is available from the dike and piers. Wading along the north shore is also popular.
