Alum Creek Lake, OH

Located just north of Columbus Ohio outskirts, Alum Creek Lake is a 3,000-acre lake with over 68 miles of shoreline. Bass (largemouth and smallmouth), muskie and saugeye are the primary targets for many anglers here. Additionally the lake supports populations of crappie, catfish, bluegill and white bass.

Much of the lake is surrounded by heavy forage, limiting access to much of the shoreline for bank fishing. In winter, anglers can traverse these areas by walking over them to go ice fishing for black crappie, white crappie and bluegill. However, there are areas around the lake with access points. Rock, timber and bluffs are the primary cover for baitfish and fish. Six boat ramps, situated around the lake, provide plenty of boat launch opportunities for all types of pleasure boats, sailboats, pontoons, bass boats and other fishing boats. Kayaks and canoes can be launched at numerous locations. The marina, stores, lodging, campgrounds and restaurants around the lake enhance your stay - whether it is a few days fishing or a longer family vacation.
