Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – August 28th, 2015
Dillon Reservoir (Muskingum County) – Take advantage of the cooler temperatures and start looking for bass in this 1,376-acre lake. Try using topwater baits near weedlines or using plastic worms in dark colors, which include purple, motor oil, and black. Generally this time of year the most successful times will be late evening and early morning, but if you’re feeling adventurous fish may be caught throughout the night. Some bluegills and other sunfish may be caught as well using nightcrawlers fished below a bobber. Try targeting the marina area.
Lake Logan (Hocking County) – Nice catches of largemouth bass have been found in this 333-acre lake in the past. Most anglers prefer fishing the shorelines from a boat. Try using spinnerbaits to target the fish. This lake is also popular with catfish anglers. Nightcrawlers, chicken livers, or prepared catfish baits work well when fished on the bottom in addition to cut bait such as shad or suckers.
