Smallmouth Bass season begins in April and lasts through October.

If you're looking for a fight.

Few experiences are more thrilling than watching a smallmouth bass leap through the air at the end for your fishing line. Wading or floating an Ohio stream is a great way to experience nature and an opportunity to catch this exciting fish. Naturally reproducing smallmouth bass populations are found in

reservoirs and streams in Ohio. Catch rates are often higher in streams because smallmouth bass are more common in streams than reservoirs and the stream fish are often concentrated in specific areas.

 

Local waters guided include the Olentangy River, Scioto River and our specialty, the Kokosing River. Walk-in trips as well as floats in Rafts, drift boats or Jet boats are available. Our season typically runs from mid-March through early November.

Smallmouth fishing in Central Ohio can be good to excellent at times although the size of our fish is usually not exceptional. Get ready for one of the best fighting fish Ohio has to offer!
