Southwest Ohio Fishing Report – May 22nd, 2015

 Adams Lake (Adams County) – Anglers should have good success fishing from the shoreline. Bluegills and crappies can be caught on nightcrawlers and waxworms. This is a great place for fishing with youth. Pay careful attention to the trees and weeds along the bank. Fish are hitting around 18 inches deep.

Cowan Lake (Clinton County) – Saugeye action is heating up, with anglers taking better numbers of 13- to 20-inch fish. Try casting a jig tipped with a piece of nightcrawler, and hop it along the bottom in five to 12 feet of water near the beach. If you prefer trolling, saugeyes can be taken on shad patterned medium or deep diving crankbaits. A lot of seven- to eight-inch crappies are being caught on small tube jigs or minnows fished near submerged trees six to 15 feet deep. Bluegills can be caught on red worms or waxworms near boat docks or the edges of lily pads.

Lake Loramie (Shelby County) – Channel catfish are biting on chicken livers, shrimp, and stink baits fished on the bottom. Bluegills have been caught recently around boat docks, riprap shorelines, and along the edges of lily pads. Try using small jigs tipped with waxworms fished just one to two feet under a small bobber.
