Northeast Ohio Fishing Report – May 8th, 2015

 Mosquito Lake (Trumbull County) – Anglers are still catching walleyes on this Trumbull County lake using a variety of methods and offerings. Walleyes are ranging from 18 to 25 inches. They are being caught by trolling deep water with Berkley Flicker Shads, according to angler reports. Walleyes are also being caught by fishermen jigging blade baits such as Vib-E’s along the channels. The walleye bag is a mixed one with smaller and bigger fish all in the same places.

Pymatuning Lake (Ashtabula County) – Anglers are catching a good number of yellow perch and crappies on this lake that spans the eastern border between Ohio and Pennsylvania. Crappies are coming in anywhere from 15 to 25 feet of water by anglers using minnows under a bobber or waxworms. Yellow perch are biting on the same baits, though they’re tending to be in shallower water.

Mahoning River (Trumbull County) – Anglers are fishing below the dam of the lake where it enters Lake Milton. A few walleyes are being caught, and in the later evenings the crappie bite seems to be turning on. Use swimbaits for the walleye bite and the same offerings will pick up some crappies, too. For a twist, try jig and twister tail combinations.

Charles Mill Lake (Ashland, Richland counties) – Anglers fishing in 10 to 15 feet of water on this lake have been picking up the occasional saugeye. According to angler reports, the ‘eyes are suspended about halfway up the water column. Try jigging blade baits for the best bite. Crappies too are being caught on small minnows and waxworms fished in the wood.

West Branch Reservoir (2,300-acres; Portage County) – This lake is located just east of Ravenna and offers more than 40 miles of shoreline fishing, as well as two boat ramps, which are both accessible from Cable Line Road. Anglers are reporting that the walleye bite is tough right now, but you might try a blade bait to entice the bite. Muskie anglers are having some success, primarily using big inline bucktail spinnerbaits in the wood.
