Maumee River Report:
TEMP- 38 degrees
Barometer: 29.81 inHg and falling
Wading to Bluegrass Island Is not recomended at this time.
A few early anglers have ventured out to test the waters but we have no reports of any walleye caught.
The new 2017-18 Ohio fishing licenses will be available February 22
While fishing the Maumee River one of the most important aspects is the river height; both for safety and fishing conditions. Blue Grass Island is closed to access once the water reaches 582 feet( which is considered normal river level) above sea level. Then once the water continues to increase many locations are not accessible pushing fisherman down to White Street, Orleans Park, and Fort Meigs.
For those of you not familiar with the our stretch of the Maumee River we have laminated maps available for sale with fishing access sites and boat launches marked. a good reference tool when reading the report to see what areas are accessible any particular day .
Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing.
