I enjoy fishing the Maumee early and late in the run. The crowds are not too bad and the fish are still there if you work a little.
Welcome Bow Lady. :smiley_byebye:

Swantucky is on here.. He fishes the Maumee like a pro... Matter of fact he has a guide service also...

Welcome Bow Lady!

HB and I fish the river almost every day during the run March until May sometime. If you want to fish the peak of the run and are worried about the crowds drop one of us a pm and you can squeeze in with us. Hopefully you don't mind lots of fish, laughs, and a fair amount of bad words.

Swantucky, wonder when Gern will make his appearance and tell us how to catch warreyes? :smiley_cheerleader::smiley_chitchat::cool:

I make appearance. I rike catch warreyes. I know how to catch warreyes.

I tell you how to catch them....... Come to my pond and get in paddleboat and troll night crawler harnesses about 4' below a bobber!!! Warreye very hungry in my pond.:smiley_breakdance:

Me and the kids have been catching them all summer long like this!

I never even tried for them in my pond this year. Normally we catch a few, but the kids have been busy with other things this summer.


BTW, swantucky found the thong you left out on the island. You prolly recognize it in the avatar. :smiley_blink:

I sold my float tube, so unfortunately I will have to resort to just fishing from shore next time I am up visiting swantucky.... ;)


I do some river fishing on the Cuyahoga from time to time, pike, smallies, crappie and rock bass mostly. Stay tuned for an update on my new river adventure after this weekend. ;)

I fish Lake Erie for Walley and perch BUT when the fall hits I am fly fishing the rivers here in North East Ohio for the Steel Heads. :smiley_asswhip:





















These are just a few of many. Great time from September (late) until spring around Easter. Only problem in last spring the dang Suckers run the rivers as well.

Sooooooo Matt, you want to :smiley_caravan: up and do some fishing this spring?

Why wait until spring, they start running in late September depending on the weather and river conditions. I :smiley_asswhip: ( I know that is a whip but it closes they have for fly fishing ).

Biggest one I caught was in November, 12 pounds 1 oz. He is the one in my Avitar.

I worked a ton durning the winter and spring so I missed the BIG run in the spring.

Those are some awesome fish RD. All we have over here is carp streams! I would miss a lot of work if I had that kind of opportunity close to home. Trout are really cool fish, and river fishing is as good as it gets for me.

Thanks Gern.

Got to be honest one of the better spots I fish is no more then 2 or 3 minutes from my house. I can walk to it in about 10 minutes but I usually drive my truck or ATV to it.

I can hit 4 or 5 spots within 10 to 15 minutes. I am very lucky to live that close. :smiley_crazy:
