Southwest Ohio Fishing Report – January 16th, 2015

Paint Creek Lake (Highland County) – Paint Creek Lake has a layer of skim ice, particularly around the shoreline, making bank fishing a tough proposition. The remainder of the lake is open and anglers are catching good numbers of crappies on baby shad imitating baits and minnows. Fishing below the dam is fair at best with low flow affecting the fishing prospects. A few saugeyes are being caught and the occasional crappie is also coming in for saugeye anglers.

Caesar Creek Lake (Warren County) –  Anglers are catching crappies in 15 feet of water using minnows under a bobber and casting jigs. Look for any type of downed cover, particularly in the north end of the lake for the best bite.

Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County) – The crappie bite at Rocky Fork has been steady, with anglers catching fish near the restaurant and boat docks. Most fish have been in the seven- to nine-inch range, with some up to 11 inches. A few saugeyes are also being caught, up to 13 inches.
