Cold Creek trout camp

Discussion in 'Northwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by walleyecraig, Jan 7, 2009.

  1. if you wanna go catch fish but not walk out onto a frozen lake or pond. just head over to sandusky to Cold Creek and limit out on trout right off the back deck at margaritaville. just put a split about a foot up on a smaller hook, throw a shiner on there and its like cating fish out of a barrel. plus its alot of fun and every now and then you'll hook into a nice steelhead or northern :B

    Every now and then they'll haul you out for fishing there too...

    More times then not they will either kick you out or call the police. So not a good idea to go down there. Plus catchin' fish right behind a restaurant doesn't appeal to me at all...I like to get out into nature. There are a ton of places to catch steelhead right now anyway.
  4. The old owner was ok with people fishing there as long as they were closed. But as always there were a few people who ruined it for everyone. I went there in March of last year and the odnr officer was there telling everyone they had to leave. My buddy works there so I had him ask the owner if he and a buddy could fish there, and he said he allows NO one to fish there. You can go across the bridge and pay five dollers to fish there but I feel you don't have half the luck you do closer to the falls, unless you are right up against the bridge and you have to get there early to get that spot.

    LOL, someone with 9 total posts recommending that you trespass... let me file this thread under the "why did I even look category." Hopefully you get my point, that is private property. Why deal with the headache of getting chased off, lectured, or fined.

    I don't like advertising on OGF for someone who isn't a paid advertiser on the site but I'd highly recommend you pay the 5 bucks and fish in the area the camp owns.
  7. Is it good fishing at the trout camp this time of year?? Would like to try it out but it is a 3-4 hour drive for me. Don't want to make the drive for nothing.

    The fishing is always pretty decent (Fall through Spring). Go on a weekday. Not fun at all on the weekends though. Fifty people trying to catch the 6 fish isn't my cup of tea.
  9. im sorry guys ive only been there twice and i didnt know it was that big of a deal because its always been closed when i went. i was with my buddy just following him and i was suprised at how many fish were right there off that deck but thanks for letting me know about how many times people have been told to leave i had no idea i guess ill just stay at the camp next time
  10. Craig they really need to put some signs up. I fished there alot just last year and also had no idea you were not supposed to. You can if you have a small boat, but it is kind of hard to manage the current.

    A small boat would be a rough one but I have seen a couple people do it b4. I didn't mean to have my post sound like I was a jerk...I just meant it's illegal to fish there and it wasn't a good idea to send people there. The same thing happen to me the first couple one said a word...then the DNR showed up the 3rd time and told me the deal. The trout camp is obviously a choice but it's not the best fishing, but I haven't been there since the dig out. I drove over it the other day and the dig out seems to have really been a good choice because it was getting real shallow.
