They are up in the river! People are catching them all over the place in the Mahoning downstream from the dam. The weather has not been the greatest but the guys that have been out pushing through it have caught fish. They report using 2” Twister Tails(Junebug, Pink, Black, Chartreuse), Rooster Tails(Black, Pink, Gold), and on Panfish Assassins(Pink, Black). With the weather warming up the spots will be filling up so get out there and fish if you can because before you know it the run will be over.
With the weather improving and warming up finally, we expect crappie should be moving shallow. Some crappie have been caught in the Mahoning throwing by submerged trees and branches. The guys have been using twister tails and Panfish Assassins to catch them on a 1/8th or 1/16th ounce jighead depending on how strong the current is.
Reports of walleye are coming in that they are being caught on Berlin by the willows. The guys are using live bait jigheads either 1/16th or 1/8th ounce tipped with a little bit of nightcrawler.
