Berlin Fishing Report:
The water level at Berlin was measured at 2.69 feet below normal for this time of year, with a sensor temperature of 56.48°, and a buoy temperature 1 foot below surface level of 57.08°.
Recent rain this past Thursday & Friday, have brought the water level up on the Mahoning, and there are reports of increased numbers of white bass. Anglers have found fishing upstream closer to the dam to produce better results; try setting up near Greenbower and Rockhill. Beetle Spins, Rooster Tails, Roadrunners and Bobby Garland soft plastics on 1/16 and 1/8 jigheads are yielding excellent catches, and we are selling more in purple and pink.
Crappie fishing is still on the upswing, even with the chilly temperatures. Deer Creek has seen the best numbers, yet smaller size, in recent days. Good sized slabs have come from Walborn Reservoir, off of Reeder Road, with anglers using minnows. Jigs and Twister Tails are producing good numbers at Rockhill Bridge with Panfish Assassins and 1/16 jigs as well as Bobby Garlands.
Wipers are being caught on chicken liver and Square Bill crankbaits in Walborn and near Price Street bridge. Look for wipers to move to the Deer Creek Spillway this weekend due to the rain we received earlier this week.
Walleye have been reported in shallow waters in Berlin along the highbanks, points and in the trees. These spots will require a boat or kayak. Northland Fireball jigs topped with nightcrawlers have been popular.
