Largemouth bass
Walleye
Saugeye

Orangespotted sunfish
Carp
Redhorse sucker
Quillback
Freshwater drum(sheephead)
Longnose gar
Channel catfish

I know About the flatheads and have hooked them, but ive never landed one

I dont mean to be picky, but as long as we're building a list, I dont think there are saugeyes in the river. I have caught saugers in there though. I'm not sure if saugeyes are a naturally occuring species, or just a creation of certain DNR agencys for their ability to survive stocking in certain waters.
You can add white sucker to the list though.Also split crappies into black and white.
Although I could be wrong on the saugeye, and Im sure someone will tell me if I am.
It's been awhile since I've caught a sauger out of the river and I'm curiuos as to why you added a saugeye to your list. Could you tell me what and when you caught one?

I have never caught one but about three or four years ago a 36" Sturgeon was caught during the Wallye run.

Here is a link to one caught in 2003

About the saugeye, I'm not totally sure on identification but they definitely had dorsal fin spots like a sauger and a blotch on the dorsal fin like a walleye, also had walleye like white blotch on tail. It surprised me, I actually got 2 within ten minutes at providence dam. It was about a month ago after a heavy rain, the water was much higher than normal. They were on a white roadrunner spinner. I have pictures, bu can't get them on ogf. I could emAil you them if you wanted

The Maumee r is home to over 100 species of fish. Pretty impressive I've always thought.

You will get a much better response if you post this in the Central Ohio forum. Good luck.

I got ripped on this site and called a liar about 2 years back form posting that I had a 13 species day at Grand Rapids. Now we have a list with about 28 fish so far and phisherman saying that the Maumee is home to 100 species of fish Pissed me off at the time
Just saying some people should be a little more leniant and trusting before you bash someone on here. I feel better now.

Just so u know deathfrom above... I believe that u got 13 species in a day. The most I've got is 7, but if you fish enough at the dam, 13 could definitely happen. I do honestly believe the 2 two fish were saugeyes, I've caught all three( walleye sauger saugeye) now and they were definitely different. I wish I cud post pics

Thanks for the support fishfray. Like I said, I was in no way doubting you on the Saugeyes. Interesting topic though. Weve got KaGee kind of echoing what I thought, then I read Gary's post on his website for the Maumee Bait and Tackle ,The River Update, saying him and a buddie caught 9 Saugeyes the other day, with saugeye being the word he used, to support your school of thought. Gary's pretty knowlegable about the river. If I get a chance, I'll try to stop in and see him. Thanks again
