    well guys I went to Tinks Creek about two or so weeks ago, and did some smallie fishing. its a nice little creek. seeing as it is only about 2-3 minutes from my new house, i will be spending some time there.

    anyways, I walked the creek for mabey 1 1/2 miles, in the snow and caught one 13" smallie. it surprised me, because so many people had said the smallies in there werent that big. I caught him on the fly rod using an #6 Blacknose dance, and he put up a good fight! i think i could get used to this Ohio fishing ;)
     
  2. Welcome to Ohio! Thanks for the report, keep them coming.......
     

  3. in what city or part did you fish the creek? Is most of the creek privately owned in twinsburg?

    im not sure, i was by ravs creek side. we parked there, and i hiked across the road, and up from there.

    as for it being privatly owned, i didnt see any no trespassing signs, and nor did anyone tell me to not be there.
     
  5. watch where you fish property line do not need to be marked and without permission you can and will get a ticket...
    Otherwise
    WELCOME to Ohio and try that fly rod for some steelhead at the Rocky River ;)

    Be careful when fishing Tinker's creek. It is considered one the most if not THE most polluted stream in Ohio. An estimated 80%, most times, of the water volume is recycled waste water from the numerous poop plants along the creek. Contact with the water is considered a no-no. Enough said on that! Yuk!

    Twinsburg area is about the uppermost reach of the smallies in that creek. I would have to say that downstream near the cuyahoga is better. It is a blast to sight fish carp in there in the summer. Been wet wading her for years and never had any probs. There is only one poop plant upstream here. Problem is runoff on this stream. Need any more info email me
