Fishing At Buckeye Lake
Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, white bass, hybrid striped bass and saugeye at Buckeye Lake in Ohio.
Whether you're fishing in T-shirts in summer or ice fishing in winter, Buckeye Lake is a great destination for anglers. Much of this 2,800-acre lake, in the central part of the state, is shallow (use caution), yet it yields nice stringers of bass, saugeye, crappie, catfish, white bass and hybrid stripers. Rip rap rock lines much of the 37 miles of shoreline, very little of which is available for fishing from the bank. Marinas offer rental boats, gas and supplies. Four boat launch ramps are available for public use. Small craft like canoes, kayaks and car-top boats work well for fishing along the rocky banks. Saugeye are a popular target when ice fishing in winter, plus bluegill are often cooperative.
