Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – June 5th, 2015

Resthaven Wildlife Area, (Erie County) – Resthaven Wildlife Area is located just outside Castalia on State Route 269. The area has 444 acres of water contained in 10 different ponds. Bluegill fishing is usually very good this time of year. Try casting waxworms, small jigs, and spinnerbaits throughout the pond edges. Ponds 7 and 8 should be doing the best right now. Pond 8 has a boat ramp and handicapped accessible fishing pier. Boats may be used on the other ponds; however, no ramps are available. Gasoline motors up to 9.9 horsepower may be used on all ponds.

Killdeer Plains Reservoir (Wyandot County) – Killdeer Reservoir features a newer floating boat ramp and 241 acres of fishable water. Smallmouth bass should be biting this month. Try fishing the rocks along the island and the south shore. Cast the shoreline using crayfish or leeches under a slip bobber, set just off the bottom. Also, try casting dark colored tube jigs or crankbaits along the shore. Crappies should also be biting right now. Try fishing the south shoreline using live minnows fished under a slip bobber, or 1⁄8-ounce jigs with a twister tail tipped with a minnow. There is a 10 horsepower limit on the reservoir.

Barton Lake (Williams County) – Barton Lake is located on the St. Joseph River Wildlife Area, along County Road J, west of CR 10, southwest of Montpelier. It is 19 acres in size and now is an excellent time to pursue crappies in the lake. Try fishing the inlet near the fishing access off of CR J. Minnows fished under a slip bobber usually produce the best results. A ramp for small boats is available. There is a limit of 10 sunfish area wide, and only five bass, which must be 18 inches in length, may be kept.

Lost Creek Reservoir (Allen County) – This reservoir is located on the east side of Lima, at the intersection of Reservoir Road and Roush Road. Anglers have been catching a mixed bag of saugeyes, crappies, rock bass, white bass, smallmouth and largemouth bass, and catfish. Try drifting or trolling worm harnesses and crankbaits. Anglers can also cast crankbaits from the shoreline. Anglers can use boats with electric motors; however, there is not boat ramp, so boats must be carried over the dike on the west side.
