    went to xenia a couple times recently to watch my daughter's basketball team and passed what i reckon to be rainbow. so i'm thinkin of tryin 'em out this year. anyone got any tips? what pay puddle is over in moraine? saw it going to a snow/ice removal snore session put on by the state.
     
  2. Rainbow has been re-po'ed by the Bank, doubt it will be open this year. the one in Moraine? was it on Gettysburg rd and next to the big landfill? if so it was "Gettysburg lake". its a pretty good pay-pond that doesnt get much pressure. they arent in to "big fish" so your most likely going to be targeting and catching farm channels, trout, bullheads, and maybe big panfish.
     

  3. Rainbow isnt closing or owned by the bank. I know the owner personally ive grown up with his family since i was a little kid. He will be opening it up in march, weather permiting. The owner is going to let me put my jon boat into a few of the lakes. He wants to see what the fishfinder shows. I will get with him and find out his stocking schedual. He had a set schedual last year and ill check to see if its the same.

    Only other one I know of around here, is Bills Trout lakes. They are really picky thou, cant use superlines either.

    The last time I looke as I passed there, the lake was up for sale again. DIP.... it's pretty much an easy drive for you, but man there has GOT to be better areas for you to go. Get w/ ole Flathunter, he knows all of the good pay puddles.
     
  5. Yeah he had the property up for sale because he wasnt making much money. He said that due to the import ban on fish from canada the cost of fish went way up. He only made 36,000 profit last year and he said the hassle wasnt worth it.

    You may want to talk to your friend. There is a sign out @ Rainbow that say it has been sold to new owners.
     
  12. hmmm i was wondering about that myself
     
  13. Rainbow is under new ownership, and we will be opening March 14, 2008. Currently stocking trout and cats! Family owned, family oriented. Great fishin' fun.

    Dont worry Bill, he never responds to my pm's..It is like talking to a wall!
     
  16. Hopefully the new onwers will keep cleaning Rainbow up, my friend cleaned a few of the lakes out and pulled a few cars out of one of the bigger lakes. The only reason i quit fishing there was because Rainbow was getting really bad, they need to drain a few of their lakes and clean out all the crap, cars,bus and other misc junk thats still in the big ones. Drain em and clean em out and ill be there.

    There's a nice lake up north here, Rohr's Lake. If you make it up, let me know and I'll try to go out with you. Excellent channel cat lake.
