That looks like it came from up North, I have always wondered what the Mad is like north of Urbana. Is it good smallmouth water? Is the trout fishing better between West Liberty and Urbana?wowzas, that's a beast. If you don't mind me asking, how far up the mad were you? Not looking for a specific spot, just that I fish the mad around Dayton where they are considered non-existant. Just wondering how far I'd have to go up river to find em.

I have personally never fished north of Springfield on the Mad, I have spent some time on it downstream of Springfield. But from what I understand you have to get up around Urbana to get into the trout with any regularity. Between Springfield and I-70 is mostly Carp water and Down stream of 70 and the closer you get to the Miami the better the smallie fishing gets. I imagine this is because it is fed largely by springs upstream and less run off water like the other rivers in the area. This make it a cooler water river, especially the farther up stream you go. As you go farther down stream the water begins to warm which is why you see different species of fish in different stretches of the same river.That looks like it came from up North, I have always wondered what the Mad is like north of Urbana.
