Fishing Ohio  by Tom Cross
Fishing Ohio is the only guide with fishing information for every public lake and stream in the state. Adding in reservoirs, rivers, tailwaters, and wildlife areas, more than 200 top sites are included. Brand-new, this book covers the state—by Wildlife Districts—from the steelhead streams in the northeast to the walleye spawning grounds in the western basin, with special sections on the Ohio River and Lake Erie. Each entry describes the water, its game fish, and where to find them, and provides angling tips as well as advice on boat ramps, access, marinas, lodging, local attractions, and regulations. This book uncovers the good fishing found in every part of the state. Not only does Fishing Ohio lead the way to a great catch or a great day of fishing, but it also talks you into going.
