Located 10 miles north of I-80 near the PA border with OH, Shenango River Lake is an ideal destination for fishing and pleasure-boating. This 11,000-acre reservoir has plenty of areas to fish, including many areas accessible for shoreline fishing. A fishing pier and fish-cleaning station are available at the Clark Recreation Area. A marina and numerous boat ramps provide easy access for canoes, kayaks, pontoon boats, fishing boats and pleasure boats of all kinds. Anglers have a full menu of fish species to pursue here. The lake has populations of bass, crappie, perch, walleye, hybrid striped bass, muskie, northern pike, catfish and sunfish. An abundance of brush and vegetation provides cover for baitfish and predators alike. If the fish are shallow, vegetation is the key. When the fish move deeper in summer and winter, the river channel and off-shore structure is a major key.
