A buddy and me hit the blanchard yesterday after work got into to some nice smallies was almost lile it was spring again headn back tonight
With hunting season hitting I'd be very careful fishing in that area.I know a few guys that have had luck by liberty landing west of 140 bout half mile west of the liberty Twp fire dept. They got into some decent bass. But as for when its high no I don't I'll ask around and try to give you some pointers I am just to new at river fishing.

I don't know anything about the auglaize but if the water temps get in the mid to high seventies trout will start dying. I think I read above 73 degrees you will start to see increased mortality rates in trout and above 77 most of them will die. The Blanchard feels like bath water in the summer. The upper clear fork river has a lot of natural cold springs to feed it so it stays relatively cool in the summer. The area in the Mohican forest is primarily fed by top water from pleasant hill lake, gets to warm if we have a hot summer and most of the trout never see a second season. A couple of years ago they electroshocked in the park and didn't find one holdover. This summer was a little cooler and I know a few holdovers have been caught.Does anyone think that the Auglaize would be able to support trout? It's not as muddy as the Blanchard, and it is larger. The Maumee already supports small amounts of Steelhead and Salmon during the colder months. Could the Auglaize support trout as well?
I agree about the dam but they also need to do a better job filtering the water coming off the farm fields above Findlay into the main river and Eagle and Lyle Creeks. Less erosion directly into the river after the spring tilling would definitely improve the fishery.We know that if the Dam in Findlay would get torn down we would have more quality water, with more fish and wildlife. For some reason this topic gets no air time. with the flooding we endure I would think that would be one of the first things to happen to control floods. As a dam is to hold water back and make flood waters higher behind it.
It would clear the waters, but even then to warm for trout, but it would be a quality smallmouth and a few river musky could be planted through town. I think in the summer the stagent waters loose oxigen due to the dam.
Nope, It would drain the 'old Reservoir" (the big pond that goes around Riverside Park) and let out tons of silt which they don't want to do. That's the reason they only took out part of the Liberty Street dam. I wouldn't look for anything to happen with the Findlay dams unless it would be part of whatever flood control issues they decide to implement.Has removing the dam at riverside ever come up before that anyone knows about?
