Northeast Ohio fishing forecasts
As the spring days grow warmer, more and more Ohioans will be venturing out to go fishing. Ohio offers many fantastic 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.
The ODNR Division of Wildlife has numerous resources available to assist anglers, including lake maps, fishing tips by species and fishing forecasts based on survey data. Anglers are also encouraged to use an online, interactive fishing map that allows users to select features in order to customize their own fishing maps for Ohio’s inland lakes. This map and the selective features are even mobile-friendly so anglers can access information right on the water. For more information, click the “fishing tab” at wildohio.gov.
