Findlay Reservoirs 1 and 2 Fishing

If you head to Findlay Reservoirs #1 and #2, you can hit two fishing spots in one day. This outside perimeter of the collective reservoirs is roughly 5.3 miles. And thanks to an agreement between the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife and the city of Findlay, both reservoirs are open to the public for fishing. Some of the fish you can catch in both reservoirs include walleye, yellow perch, white bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, channel catfish, and bullheads. The best fishing here happens in the spring. You can also ice fish here in the winter, though you’ll want to stay clear of the inlet and outlet structure areas, which can be very dangerous. If you go ice fishing for walleye and channel catfish, try jigging spoons or ice lures. If you’re after yellow perch, bluegill, or crappie, use mousies, wigglers or way worms on ice flies.
