Where are the fish? I slayed them in oct. and first of nov. but have been skunked since. No bite in Mohican river, Pleasant hill spillway or Charles mill spillway. Charles mill has good water but I have only seen 2 fish caught. Any help would be appreciated.

Bushplanter, the fishing has really slowed in Central Ohio. There is not enough water in the reservoirs to launch a boat, and the water in the spillways is almost non-existent. We need alot of rain!!!

I know what you mean about no and low water. With the rain of late we have a good flow out of Charles mill but no fish bite. I have waded Mohican from Loudonville to Greer without any luck. Even in holes 10 and 12 feet deep which have produced during low water in the past have not given up anything. I thought maybe wills creek. Have you tried there?

No, I haven't tried Will's Creek. I usually fish Alum and Hoover, but as low as they are I am going to have to try some different areas. Hoover did come up two feet this week, now it is only 13 feet down.

I also fish central Ohio. I have had no luck in the last month due to the low water. We have gone to lake Erie a couple of times with pretty good results. Next week we will try going to the Ohio River. We have had some pretty good trips in January and Febuary the last couple of years. Try the Greenup dam area or any of the warm water discharges from the power plants. If the sauger aren't bitting the hybrids usually are.

go to http://www.thetent.com/arcadia/oh/ohsf_index.htm and click on state that you want see stream levels in. as far as wills creek goes it has some of the biggest saugeye in ohio. you just have to watch the water levels and let that determine where you fish it.

Bill Seevers had the state record saugeye in 1989 from the Wills Creek tail waters. I think it was 10 lb plus if mem serves me correctly... the record has been since broken a couple of times.
