Anglers have been successful turning muskies on Ohio’s inland waters, with many fish taping over the 40-inch mark.
With river temps falling into the mid-60s, steelhead run picked up, with 500 going through the South Bend Fish Ladder in the last week or two.
The incredible walleye action off Cattaraugus Creek is slowing down, though fish still readily available in 50-75 feet of water.

Wisconsin State Roundup: Senate committee rejects four of five appointees to Natural Resources Board
I finished the Oct. 6, No. 20 Issue of WON on the morning of Thursday, Sept. 28, from elk camp in central Montana. That print issue should hit subscribers’ mailboxes starting Monday or Tuesday, Oct. 2 and Oct. 3.
I was able to stream the Sept. 27 Natural Resources Board meeting that evening by driving into a small town 10 miles off and stealing wi-fi from the one store in town. I wrote the first segment of the Issue No. 20 State Roundup column below based on what I heard from the Sept. 27 NRB meeting. Late morning of Friday, Sept. 29, after a morning hunt, I traveled 40 miles to a larger town and as I picked up cell signal I received texts stating that Sen. Rob Stafsholt and his senate committee members on yesterday afternoon Thursday, Sept. 28, rejected four of the five appointees, leaving only Paul Buhr remaining on the NRB out of that quintet.

Gene Grazzini, a former Ducks Unlimited (DU) state chairman and regional vice president, and his wife Rosalie, were recently honored for their commitment to conserving wetlands in western Minnesota’s Prairie Pothole Region. The dedication took place at the 750-acre Mosquito Ranch Waterfowl Production Area, part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) Morris Wetland Management District.
“When I started hunting in my early 20s, this was one of the first landscapes I came to,” said Gene Grazzini, now 84. “My family and I have continued hunting here through the years. We’ve hunted the potholes for ducks, flushed pheasants and pursued our share of deer.”
