Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – October 9th, 2015
Lake McKarns (70 acres; Williams County) – Largemouth bass activity is beginning to pick up. Try fishing along the edges, particularly in the southwest area of the lake. Anglers should try using topwater lures fished along the structure edges. The lake features a boat ramp and boats are limited to 10-horsepower engines.
Lake LeComte, Fostoria Reservoir #5 (137 acres; Hancock County) – As the water temperatures begin to drop, saugeyes should start to feed more heavily. Try drifting or trolling the shoreline at night with crankbaits or worm harnesses. Boats are allowed on the reservoir, with a 9.9-horsepower motor restriction.
Findlay Reservoir #2 (Hancock County) – Findlay Reservoir #2 is located southwest of Findlay on Township Road 207. There is a full boat ramp at the southern shore of the reservoir. Yellow perch are starting to bite. Look for bottom structure where yellow perch will concentrate. The best baits include minnows and red worms fished near the bottom with spreaders or crappie rigs. Fall is also great time to hook into some walleyes. Anglers should try fishing along the shoreline during the morning and evening hours. There is a 9.9-horsepower limit on the reservoir.
