Constantly changing weather can reduce or prolong any of these seasons. Some of the best fishing each season happens in relation to harsh weather. Keep the faith, roll the dice!
Northeast Ohio is flat plateau, slowly rolling east along Lake Erie's shore. Ohio offers a variety of different-sized rivers and streams. Relatively easy wading and accessible water makes fishing enjoyable locally. Inland lakes of various size are easily accessible by boat. Northeast Ohio's park district is outstanding! Unique features to Northeast Ohio are Lake Erie, trending wineries, hiking and biking trails, along with the food and entertainment scene of downtown Cleveland. There are a lifetime of fishing opportunities within 90 minutes of Cleveland!
Northeast Ohio has weather that is ever-changing. Areas we fish, especially the fisheries along Lake Erie, experience rapid changes in weather. This pattern is known as "lake effect". The ambiance of this weather adds to the experience!
