Fish_hook   The Sandusky River in Fremont, Ohio, as well as​ several other area reservoirs and bodies of water offer numerous fishing opportunities. While the spring run is our most popular fishing opportunity, good fishing can be had all year long throughout the county.  With our many parks and public access areas, Sandusky County is truly an anglers paradise.

Sport fishermen for generations have been flocking to the Sandusky River, ​each spring to take part  in the walleye and white bass spring run fishing phenomenon. This year, make it your new tradition.  The spring run is known for producing some of the largest walleye taken from Lake Erie each year. The most consistent success on spring walleye usually occurs in the deep pools that line the Sandusky River between the State Street and Miles Newton Bridges in Fremont. Favorite gear for landing these thrashing lunkers among the rocks is a medium-weight spinning rod and ten-pound-test line. From March 1 through May 1, lures are restricted to those with single hooks, so lead head jigs in a variety of weights and bright colors are the universal favorite. The actual start date is triggered by water temperature so dates may vary. For fishing conditions and regulations, visit:
