Fishing At Hoover Reservoir
AKA: Hoover Dam Lake
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, white bass, longnose gar and saugeye at Hoover Reservoir in Ohio.
Located on the northeast outskirts of Columbus Ohio, Hoover Reservoir is a 2,800-acre lake offering watersport activities and fishing to area residents. With 45 miles of shoreline and multiple access points for fishing from the bank, there is plenty of room for fishing, sightseeing, picnics and other outdoor activities. Pick from a half-dozen boat ramps to launch fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, pontoons or pleasure boats. Note there is a 10-horsepower limit. Due to the 10-HP limit, the lake receives little fishing pressure. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are plentiful and grow to healthy sizes. Crappie, saugeye, catfish, white bass, gar and bluegill also reside here and receive less fishing attention than other area lakes. Camping and lodging are located a few miles from the lake.
