Fishing in Ohio

With the world-renowned Lake Erie on one side and the glorious Ohio River on the other, Ohio truly is "The Heart of It All." But fishing in Ohio is so much more than just two big names. There are 50,000 ponds and 7,000 miles of streams statewide where you can cast your line. And, if you’re in doubt where to start from, Ohio charter operators will show you the latest hotspots. 

Ohio is home to over 160 fish species. We could rest our case here, but where’s the fun in that? The state is proud of its Bass and Trout fisheries, but Walleye are the absolute stars of the show. Apart from featuring some serious headliners, "The Buckeye State" also has premier Yellow Perch, Crappie, and Bluegill fishing spots. And don’t be surprised if you stumble on Musky and Pike, too.

With acres of water across the state, there are fishing opportunities throughout the entire year. If you’re a winter fan, the good news is that Ohio doesn’t hibernate. Indian Lake and Portage Lakes are among the best ice fishing destinations. Meanwhile, Port Clinton is the number one departure point for exploring Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay year-round.

Winter months are reserved for ice angling. You can easily spend a day bonding with your family on a frozen pond. The rest of the year offers 4 hour lake and river trips, also suitable for families. If you’re a seasoned angler looking for a Walleye or Bass challenge, then a full day trip is ideal for you. Whatever option you choose, Ohio charter operators will cater to your needs.

Rules & Regulations

Everyone aged 16 and older is required to obtain a fishing license before heading out to fish in Ohio. So, regardless of whether you’re fishing with a licensed charter operator or on your own, make sure you purchase a permit. The best way to keep up the pace with the latest rules and regulations is to check out the official website of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Ohio Fishing Seasons

January

The new year is upon us, so feel free to celebrate with some world-class ice fishing. If you know what you’re doing, you’ll be catching Walleye in droves.

February

The fact that it’s cold doesn’t mean the fish aren’t hungry. It’s perfect for either stalking Steelhead in Lake Erie or Largemouth Bass in the rivers.

March

The spring spawning run is upon us! Starting from Maumee River, this brings a whole bunch of fish right into the hands of prepared anglers.

April

White bass will usually begin their migration up Lake Erie tributaries in mid April. An absolute treat for shore anglers casting into the flow.

May

Mad River is a very popular spot for going after Brown Trout this time of year. Whether it’s conventional or fly angling, you’ll be drowning in fish soon enough.

June

Tournament season hits Ohio’s northern shores. If you think you’ve got what it takes, sign up and compete with other anglers for some fabulous prizes.

July

It can get really hot in summer, which is why some anglers opt for night fishing. In the case of Muskingum River, look forward to some big Catfish.

August

As the water temperatures go up, so does the Smallmouth Bass action in various rivers and streams. Have fun!

September

September is when Yellow Perch fishing really kicks into high gear on Lake Erie. Things keep getting better and better, to the joy of all Buckeye anglers.

October

Steelhead fishing in October is especially bountiful in the tributaries of Lake Erie. Fly anglers will try and win them over with nymphs and streamers.

November

Walleye are migrating west after having spent the summer in the Lake Erie central basin. Those after them will line up at the Huron Pier and hook ‘em up.

December

The cold weather does nothing to stop Brown Trout fishing from being great. Clear Fork River is especially potent for loading up on Browns in December.
