Kiser Lake (Champaign County) – Anglers are catching bluegills up to 10 inches in length on this southern Ohio reservoir. Yellow perch and crappies are also in the mix with the slabs running up to 12-13 inches. Try waxworms or nightcrawlers under a bobber for bait.
CJ Brown Reservoir (Clark County) – The safest area to fish this Springfield-area lake is the marina, according to angler reports. Catches have been spotty – the occasional walleye is being reported by anglers dead-sticking from the docks. Bluegills too seem to be biting on small plastics, jig and minnow combinations, or waxworms under a bobber.
Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County) – Anglers fishing the docks at the restaurant have been catching crappies and bluegills fairly regularly. Try waxworms, maggots, or nightcrawlers fished under a bobber. You can never go wrong with small jigs and minnows either.
