As the spring days grow warmer, more and more Ohioans will be venturing out to go fishing.
Ohio offers many opportunities for the public to fish, including 124,000 acres of inland water, 7,000 miles of streams, 2.25 million acres of Lake Erie water, and 481 miles of the Ohio River, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
Numerous resources are available to assist anglers, including lake maps, fishing tips by species, and fishing forecasts based on survey data. For more information, click the “fishing tab” at wild ohio.gov.
In our region, Findlay Reservoir Number 2 offers some of the best inland yellow perch fishing in the Buckeye State. Good numbers of large perch over 10 inches are being caught every year.
