Black River Elyria

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by BigCodyDiesal, Feb 22, 2005.

  1. I was wondering if anyone fishes the Black river located in Elyria/Lorain county. Not a lot of people do because they think it's too dirty, but i've caught 3 all ohio bass from my favorite hole. Anyone fish here but me? Cody
     
  2. I grew up with the Black river in my backyard.I have not fished it for 6 or so years but I think it's no dirtier than most other ohio rivers.

    I caught a few small largemouth right around the Ramp but never really fished it hard.

    He fishes south of the 31st street bridge in Lorain all the way to the tressel and continues on south from there by Ford Road.

    I used to fish the Black years ago further south. We'd park right off the side of Rt. 224 and wade it. There was some awesome smallmouth fishing in it back then but haven't been down there in 20 years.
     
  10. ...been 20+ years for me too and I don't think I could even find where I use to fish LOL
    Really never caught better river smallies then I did back then in the black river...

    Yeah we caught tons of 10-12 inchers, several in the 2-3 lb range and two buddies of mine caught fish in the 5 lb range. I dont' think I ever got one over 3 lbs. but we used to have a blast catching 'em on ultra-lights and 4 or 6 lb test. Lots of rock bass kept things interesting too.
     
  12. I live in Canton, and I just got a job in Elyria. Can anyone tell me how to get to Cascade Park?
