Hoover Reservoir (Delaware and Franklin Counties) – Largemouth bass are being caught around shoreline cover and secondary points. White bass are starting to hit. Look for schools of gizzard shad at the surface and cast spinners into them. Channel catfish can be caught using shrimp and cut shad; target the flats in the north basin at night or dawn and dusk. 10-horsepower limit.
Scioto River (Delaware, Franklin and Pickaway Counties) – Smallmouth bass can be caught using crankbaits and plastics below Griggs and O’Shaughnessy reservoirs. Try fishing the upper end of pools where it meets the riffles. Flathead and channel catfish can also be caught using cut bait or live fish around woody cover in pools.
