  8. Channel catfish have been biting well over the last couple of weeks. Try fishing live bait and chicken liver on the bottom. The sunfish bite will continue to slow ...more with the warming temperatures, but they can still be caught. Try using worms or small crappie jigs in one-to-five feet of water. Largemouth bass may be harder to catch this time of year, but they can also still be caught if you know where to look. Try soft plastics fished around structure anywhere from the boat ramp on State Route 146 to the dam. Report courtesy of Ohio DNR.
