This past week, I have been spending some time in the Chapel Hill/Akron/Cuyahoga Falls area. One evening I took this opportunity to do some scouting on the Cuyahoga River . I walked along the river/across the foot bridges from the scenic boat tour site, to La Fevers, through the Sheraton, and to the Pier across the huge gorge. This has left me loaded with questions. Is this area fishable at all? Do they allow public access through here? The Dam behind LaFevers looks promising but I got run out of there by a worker threatening me with Trespassing and Private Property. I did not see any signs posts along the entire stretch. Is this area off limits or does it pertain to the overly confusing navigability laws? I saw there was no fishing signs from the boat tour docks. The walkway that goes to the Sheraton looks like it one could fish from it, but I wondered if trouble would arise from hotel workers during mid summer, when they are utilizing the patios and such. The water doesnt appear to be overly deep through the whole stretch below the falls behind the Sheraton, and to the Pier across the huge gorge. However, it looks almost unreachable, without climbing ropes, and such. Is there an ease of access point somewhere that I am missing to get down there? Or is this area entirely off limits? I am not interested in harvesting or consuming the fish. However, I am more concerned with the water quality and whether there is a dermal contact advisory or not? Ill admit I have not done much research on this area of the Cuyahoga River or any stretch of the Cuyahoga River to be completely honest. Is this the area where I hear about the raw sewage being dumped into it, when we get heavy rains, and it floods and such. Is this area relatively safe to fish in? Despite, the obvious dangers presented by the cliffs and steep banks. Is this a bad neighborhood? Would it be best to fish daytime only? Would night fishing be alright? Or should I stay out of this area all together? Would this area even be worth fishing, or would it be a waste of time? Should I concentrate on other stretches of the River? Such as Burst Park , or below the old falls in Kent?
