    Clarence J. Brown Reservoir

    My brother and I are considering the drive from Lima to the N.E. Springfield area to kayak fish the Clarence J. Brown Reservoir. Who has fished this reservoir and what can you tell me about it? Would we be better off to fish Kiser Lake instead? We like to cast and/or troll to catch edible...

    Anyone fish Clear Fork Reservoir?

    Clear Fork Reservoir is closer, for me, than Lake Erie and safer too. I've been reading the ODNR stats on this piece of water and it sounds like it's a potiential producer of larger fish. * Has anyone fished it and knows what's there to catch? I plan on taking my kayak and doing some...

    Findlay Reservoir #2

    I fished the Findlay Reservoir #2, for the first time, this morning. I got there around 8 a.m. and should've been there around 5. The fish were hitting right away, but dwindled as the morning wore on and it got hotter. Just the same, I thought the quality of the fish was very good. I caught...

    Metzger Reservoir

    I was finally able to get on some open water yesterday evening, for about an hour and half. I marked most of the fish in 7 feet of water or less. There were other markings, in lesser numbers, at 18 to 24 feet of water. The water temps were at 38 degrees. I'm going back and trying some...

    Bresler Reservoir for a variety

    During the last month or so, I've started fishing Bresler Reservoir and it's been over 15 years or more since I fished it last. My kayak has added an element of fishing to a reservoir that has given it an appeal that I've never had with fishing from the bank. I'm no longer losing lures in the...

    Metzger/Findlay Reservoir Rumor?

    The walleye fishing in the Lima Metzger reservoir is horrible, if not non-existant. Recently, I have heard rumors that the ODNR seined most of the walleyes out of Metzger and transported them to the Findlay reservoir. I intend to ask a ODNR official, as soon as I see one. Has anyone heard or...

    New London Reservoir 1/17/2011

    I hit up New London Res for the first time this past Monday, along with my Dad, brother and cousin. We got set up and fishing by 7:00 a.m., over top of a couple of the reefs. I caught a nice channel cat on a wax worm not long after wetting a line, and my dad hauled in an 11" perch from the tip...
