Has anyone ever fished the cuyahoga river or tinkers creek in this area. If so is it any good and what kind of fish are common. I am looking to take a trip up there this friday. Thanks for any info

The Cuyahoga around there is good for smallies & channel cats, although some guys with accents & big buckets have been thinning them out.:( Best to hit areas that are harder to access nowadays. A little hiking will be worth it. Can't go wrong following the rail road tracks. Tinker's is good for carp..

He has a bike now and has been seen in 'harder to reach places". Commonly carrying out 1 to 2 buckets a day.

Yes, I fished the river there before a long time ago growing up, there was not as many people fishing there...but we would catch 20-30lb carp in the spring, what a blast!. But you can go under the Turnpike bridge is a pretty good spot (there is a gravel road that takes you down there off 82) and catch L/S mouth bass and crappies. My dad caught a 4lb smally there a few years ago, not sure what its like now the way erosion is affecting that river..I fish the Hoga in Kent, girlfriend caught about a 2 lb smallie yesterday was the biggest...I was using small white jig, I caught a 3" smallie on it..lol, good luck

Isn't Tinker's Creek over in Aurora? If that's the place you mean, there are some decent bass to be had there, but you need to be used to fishing weeds. That entire pond is a weedbed.
That is Tinkers Creek State Park. I fish there alot. Tinkers Creek itself is a tributary of the Cuyahoga. It runs from Portage County all the way to the Cuyahoga in Valley View on Canal Rd.

I've only fished at the dam and just south of Boston Mills. Haven't done any good at either spot. I commute up Riverview and always thought that bend looked nice and would like to try it too but I'd almost rather try the little pond alongside the road just north of that spot. Looks like it would hold a few nice bass.

Just keep on fishing. The river takes a while to reveal her secrets. You will be rewarded. Trust me!
