Wading to bluegrass is permitted

Well everyone but the white bass knew that the conditions were perfect yesterday ,unfortunately the fish in the river did not want to cooperate. The action was very slow just about everywhere although we did see a few caught in numbers out in bluegrass Island.

The creeks and the mouth of the creeks that feed into the Maumee River are still producing buckets of white bass. You have heard me mention Swan creek as a white bass hot spot. Swan creek begins in downtown toledo behind the farmers market and runs thuoght south toledo all the way into Maumee then to  Monclova Ohio and on into Oak openings Preserve. .–Its a long creek. There are many access points  the biggest is Swan creek metro park.

The South Toledo park named for the creek is an oasis in an urban area, providing crucial feeding and resting ground for migratory birds and a nesting area for resident species. The forested banks of Swan Creek offer a sheltered corridor of wild vegetation in the midst of the city. Animals such as deer, fox and raccoon use the corridor to move between feeding, resting and mating areas.

Swan Creek spans 441 acres and an additional 154 acres along the Swan Creek Corridor. Activities and attractions include scenic overlooks along the trails, a swinging bridge, picnic shelters, a playground  and wildlife feedings stations with indoor viewing areas, called Windows on Wildlife.  And of course great fishing. Do a bit of research and go explore the creek, white bass, Pike and steelhead trout can all be caught right here in our back yard. 

Today the weather is going to be very warm, the river is still continuing to drop and the river clarity is improving.

Have fun be safe and good luck fishing.
