mad river fishing

  1. Just wondering if there are any good spots for trout on the mad around the springfield area? I have fished the urbana access and was wondering if there was any stretches closer to hamilton that is good to fish for browns.
  2. Not really. I have caught a few trout south of urbana (rte 68) but the river quickly turns into a warmwater fishery after if passes below rte 40. Buck creek adds more warm water just past rte 40, as does the treatment plant a bit more downstream from there. Might be a trout or two down that way in the colder months, but it would be more productive to head upstream from Urbana than the other way.
