What kind of bottom does the Portage have for the most part? Mud, gravel, sand, etc. Does it run through B.G.? Not from that area, looking for a new stretch of water since I've had ZERO luck at all of my usual spots this summer. Looking at getting on some smallies. Thanks!

Portage starts in BG...

Mostly rock/shale bottom, but I've run into some mucky spots. It's really low right now.

Try out the portage in Elmore/woodville/oak harbor. 590 bridge. Largemouth, smallmouth, whitebass, rockbass, sheephead, channel cat, pike, bluegill, crappie, and gar. Caught all those there but the pike...pike spawn there early in the season.

The water level has almost doubled since Sept 1, but that doesn't mean as much as you think because it started so low. Fish the holes...

The Portage was good fishing in Elmore in early July, but I have not been back since, due to vacation, fishing the Maumee, etc.

Big Fish! Portage river

There is a area right 'downtown' behind bank and hardware store there was a old bridge thats gone but you could easily carry canoe 25 ft.from parking lot to waters edge. Otherwise down the road (rt.163) in port clinton,oh there is a DNR access site.

Hottest spot anytime of year is Public access at Port Clinton, on rt163 jus before P.C. I would hit area going away from town, there's miles of shoreline, oh fish actually seem to turn on when train comes through.
Tim67

Make sure to leave me some, ok

Caution Portage rvr

It really depends on other boat traffic, if there's alot going on it is a waste of time. Bottom gets all stirred up, too much noise etc all ou'll catch then is some sun and sheepshead. Unless I plan on going out on the lake (nice calm quite weekday) I usually find plenty of action on the river. It narrows near access but the more you come toward Oak Harbor It really opens up, but Beware of a strong west wind, it can really draw water level down and FAST. Like 15-20 yards on either bank fast. One hour your throwin to stick ups and if you're not watchin you can be sitting in mud.
