Tips and Tricks for Fishing on Ohio River

  • The best period to catch largemouth bass in the Ohio River is from June to the fall. In spring try to use shallow running crankbaits, plastic worms and spinnerbaits.
  • Night fishing during May, June and July is the best for channel catfish. Drifting large gizzard shad can give you good results.
  • Go fishing during late fall, winter and early spring to catch walleye. The most effective technique for it is using 1/8- to 3/8-ounce jigs tipped with white or chartreuse twister tails near the bottom.
  • Live baits, cut baits and livers work well for hybrid striped bass fishing here.
