Maumee River

We have seen some great action in all the local ponds and reservoirs-check out this lunker caught and released right  across the river in a Perrysburg pond!

The river level has been consistent and we have had reports of many species being caught. One angler caught 5 species of fish in an hour out at buttonwood- Catfish, smallmouth bass, gar, freshwater drum and a walleye.  The Grand Rapids area is also producing some good fishing-catfish, pike and some walleye limits.
