If you’re looking for a lake that offers excellent fishing and is popular with the locals, give Seneca Lake a try. Located in east-central Ohio, this 3,500-acre lake offers 45 miles of shoreline for fishing. Here, you can catch hybrid striped bass, catfish, crappie, bass, white bass, bluegill and saugeye. In the spring and fall, when the fish head to the shallower waters, you’ll have the best luck if you shore fish near vegetation, docks, and brush. In the summer, as the fish move to deeper waters, boat fishing is your best option. Try fishing near points, ledges, creek channels and islands. There are two boat ramps and a marina to launch your boat. You can also explore the smaller sections of the lake with canoes and kayaks.
