Northeast Ohio Fishing Report – February 26th, 2016
Atwood Lake (Carroll and Tuscarawas counties) – An angler was recently rescued from the lake due to thin ice, so make safety your first priority before venturing out on this lake. The best reports we’ve received indicate about three to four inches of ice on the lake, which is sketchy at best. Better to be safe than sorry.
Mosquito Creek Lake (Trumbull County) – Ice-fishing reports have been few on Mosquito, but that doesn’t mean that folks aren’t fishing it. In most winters at this Trumbull County lake, ice-fishing pressure is quite substantial. Anglers fish for walleyes, crappies, and bluegills with some success. Check with local tackle shops such as Causeway Bait and Tackle for current ice reports.
Nimisila Reservoir (Summit County) – Angler reports indicate that the remaining ice on this Portage Lake is not safe, as of Feb. 16. Reports indicate there is 2.5 inches of ice or less on this lake in most places, much too little to support a fisherman. A prolonged cold stretch might get anglers back on the ice here, but that could be a while.
