Southwest Ohio Fishing Report – February 26th, 2016e
Kiser Lake (Champaign County) – Before the weekend warm-up the last weekend in January, Kiser Lake was giving up good numbers of panfish through five to six inches of ice. All bets are off now, though, as temperatures in the 50s likely deteriorated much of the good ice. In case the ice comes back on, the successful setup has been a jig and minnow combination, jigged slowly. Catches of crappies, perch, bluegills, and even some small bass have been reported.
C.J. Brown Reservoir (Clark County) – Anglers are taking advantage of winter dock fishing on this lake and being rewarded in some cases with some decent crappies and yellow perch. Crappies have ranged up to 11 inches, according to reports, and the perch have been 10 inches or less. Some bluegills have also been tossed into the mix by anglers fishing tiny jigs with tails or tipped with live bait.
