OU, I grew up down there (years ago ) and fished it quite a bit, but that was before they busted it wide open with nice main roads, maintained trails, etc. The fishing was great if you could get to it. I don't know what impact the easier access has had on the place. What kind of information are you looking for?Hey Dave where are you going this weekend? Where are they hit'n in scioto county? Have you ever fished the strip mines off of Rt. 650 in Lawrence County???
Nice to hear you used to fish the strip mines Creekwalker.
I have fond memories of the strip mines before Wayne Nat'l improved the roads back there. The first time I went was in '91, we caught a bunch of bass all weighing at least 2 lbs, the biggest being near 5 lbs. I've had the best luck at a lake near the back of the strip mines, on the left. It's a small lake which bottlenecks into a big lake. Do you know where I'm talking about?
You can now drive a car to most of the lakes, which I'm sure means more pressure on the fish. But, the fish were never easy to catch, and despite the increased pressure, It's hard to believe the fish are being caught easily.
However, there are still many ponds which you can only reach by walking or ATV. Which did you have the most luck with?
All I've ever caught (or tried for) was bass and bluegill, have you ever caught anything else there?
