Jack Kiser, a pretty well-known local outdoor writer, wrote a Fishing Lake forecast and rating 1-5(by species) for NE Ohio inland lakes for the Ravenna Record Courier Sunday. Interestingly, he ranked West Branch #1 for Walleye and said it has Become the pre-emminent Best walleye "inland" lake in the State for walleye! Might not be exact wording but that's the gist of it. It may be, but not sure exactly what his justification would be. The lake is "difficult" to target walleye, and if people are catching them, they're sure keeping it to themselves! Maybe a "Good" thing! I think he's a member here, perhaps he'll chime in?
