Southeast Ohio Fishing Report – March 11th, 2016
Dillon Lake (Muskingum County) — Anglers fishing a backwater pond off Dillon have had good luck catching pan-sized crappies. Fish have ranged from 10 to 13 inches. Some saugeyes are being caught at the spillway, too. Anglers have also had some luck fishing the dock poles off the main marina for saugeyes and crappies.
Wills Creek Lake (Muskingum and Coshocton counties) — Anglers fishing below the spillway here are catching some saugeyes, some up to 20 inches. This 900-acre lake will give up crappies, bluegills, and saugeyes early in the spring. When the weather warms, try for them with jigs and waxworms or simply waxworms under a bobber. The crappie fishing here can be excellent one day and poor the next. Fish for them with three- to four-inch grubs. Saugeyes will bite on Rapala Husky Jerks and Smithwick Rattlin’ Rogues.
