Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – March 27th, 2015
Dillon Lake (Muskingum County) – Fluctuating water levels below the spillway are making this Muskingum County reservoir tough to fish, reports Bob Mathie at Bob’s Outdoor Supply. When the water cooperates, anglers are picking up a few saugeyes, crappies, and bluegills on minnows and waxworms.

Piedmont Lake (Belmont County) – Find the old roadbeds on the lake for the best saugeye bite, locals report. A very few anglers are managing to catch ‘eyes, while many more are catching crappies and catfish. Try Swedish Pimples or other types of ice spoons tipped with live bait for the best results.
