Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – July 17th, 2015

Northwest Region

Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area Reservoir (241 acres; Wyandot County) – Crappies have been biting on minnows. The best location has been south of the boat ramp, and the best time to fish has been mid-day. Channel catfish should be biting this month. Try fishing along the south and east shores using nightcrawlers or cut baits fished tightlined on the bottom, or just off bottom using slip bobbers for the best results. There is a 10- horsepower limit on the reservoir. 

Van Wert Reservoirs #1 and #2 (61 and 100 acres; Van Wert County) – Bluegills should be biting at the Van Wert reservoirs this time of year. Anglers should try fishing five to seven feet deep using waxworms under a bobber. The mornings and evenings are usually the best times to fish. At Van Wert #1, try fishing the southeast bank and at Van Wert #2 try along the east bank. Boats are permitted on the reservoirs; however, boaters must obtain a permit from the city of Van Wert.
