Charles Mill Lake Photos – February 18, 2017

Go Fish Ohio…in February? Absolutely! It was 62 degrees out – why not? The GFO-Mobile needed to stretch her legs after a long winter parked in our driveway. So did our dog. No boat in tow today. Charles Mill Lake, in Region 3, was 57 miles away from “home base” near Akron, Ohio. Its also only 60 miles northeast of Columbus and 90 miles southeast of Toledo.

We found the marina, campground and boat launch in Charles Mill State Park. Although very low currently, it looks to be great for shoreline fishing. Many people were doing just that from the day picnic area, in fact. The lake has a 10 HP motor limit. Currently, the ramp is under construction (it IS February..in OHIO), but looks to be at least 2 lanes. There is a gas dock and marina on the hillside also. Boat rental will be available in season

A very special THANKS to the Ohio Division of Natural Resources, the Division of Wildlife and the Division of Watercraft for their hard work and dedication in providing Northeast Ohio sportsmen and women with safety and excellent fishing & hunting boating opportunities!
