Fishing At Pymatuning Lake
AKA: Pymatuning Reservoir
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, white crappie, walleye, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, white bass, yellow perch and muskie at Pymatuning Lake in Ohio.
Splitting the Ohio/Pennsylvania state border, Pymatuning Lake is a 14,600-acre recreation reservoir offering a scenic boating and fishing experience. The lake has over 75 miles of shoreline, with less than half of that in Ohio. Several marinas (2 in OH), a dozen boat ramps (6 in OH), picnic areas, camping, bait & tackle shops and plenty of parking await visitors wishing to stay for a vacation, or a couple days fishing. The lake is stocked annually with walleye and muskie, and has healthy populations of yellow perch, bluegill, crappie, catfish, sunfish, white bass, largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. The lake is surrounded by Pymatuning State Park and much of the shoreline is accessible for bank fishing. The lake is open to pleasure boats, pontoons and all types of fishing boats but a 20 horsepower motor limit is in effect. Kayaks and canoes are ideal watercraft for fishing this lake. Come winter, once the ice is safe, locals get out their ice fishing gear and pursue black crappie, white crappie, walleye and bluegill.
