Musky stocking in East Fork Lake started in 2008. In 2015 they are coming on as Mother Nature intended.
The following numbers do not include Musky fry and/or fingerlings. Musky fry are also stocked – along with stocking 11″ developed Muskies. The stocked Musky chart below – are hatchery raised Musky that are fed until they become a decent size which eliminates risk of growth and life in the new environment.
2008 1559…11 1/2″ Muskies were stocked
2009 1971…9 1/2″ Muskies were stocked
2010 1784…10-14″ Muskies were stocked
2011 1492…11″ Muskies were stocked
2012 2107…9″ Muskies were stocked
2013 2118…11″ Muskies were stocked
2014 4154…11-12″ Muskies were stocked
2015 4187…11″ Muskies were stocked
East Fork Lake now has approximately 19,272 stocked Muskies. Many reports about 38″ Musky have been made in years past. My son Chad Roehm had a 38″ Musky November 2011. The first Husky Musky was predicted in 2013 – still haven’t heard of one…yet. Chad and I caught several Musky this year and fellow Musky fisherman are also catching decent sized Musky as of September 2015.

These 8 pounders are rod breakers.
Chad and Dad were out for a while but we’re back. Glad we are . Hybrids are getting active.
We love Fall fishing and 2015 is reaping some good quality fish. Hybrid Striper are nice this year. Better days are approaching through the months of September and October .
Enjoy life fishing like Chad and Dad do. We’ll see you out there. Water temp is lowering and that triggers “the Fall bite”.
Musky are doing it also! We’ve caught several nice Musky this year! More to come about Musky later.
God Bless and thanks for stopping by Southwestern Ohio fishing.

Chad and Dad have stumbled into a few Musky this year. Still small but more numbers are showing up. Chad caught 2 in the month of August while we were Bass Fishing. Chad and Dad watch East Fork closely as we both love to pursue Musky as well as other species of fish.
Water is clearing up again and the lake is stable. Great fishing ahead. Thanks for stopping by. The East Fork wildflowers are really attractive in the Fall of the year. Love God’s creation! Black eyed Susan’s!

Chad and Dad haven’t Bass fished much this year…but this weekend we had a little fun. Caught several Bass. Water was cloudy. A little high. 81 degrees. Largemouth are just starting to get into the Fall biting mode. Here’s a picture from yesterday.
Decided to let our boat go. If your interested contact…email@example.com
$3900.00 takes all
This past year Dad has been quite hindered in the fishing department due to boat problems and time issues. These hindrances haven’t stopped Chad one single iota – who this Summer has teamed up with Rodney Powers a veteran Crappie Master on East Fork Lake.
These guys have literally slaughtered Crappie and Hybrid Striper on East Fork Lake this year. Various techniques have kept the consistent bite fresh, all year. Deep or shallow; on the drop; dragging live minnows; floaters or deadline…these guys have hammered these fish. Nice ones too!
Rodney and Chad love fishing, rain or shine, hot or cold, windy or calm, doesn’t matter. They cover every nook and cranny on East Fork Lake that I believe is the Crappie Capital of Ohio.
So, I just wait for the fix on my boat while I hear numerous stories from Chad about the “the bite” on East Fork Lake. These guys are truly Crappie Masters and they don’t do bad on the Hybrid Striper either.
Better days coming for Dad with the boat issues… but it sure makes me happy to see these guys make it happen at East Fork Lake.
Appreciate everyone stopping by and enjoying life with Chad, Dad, and Rodney Powers at Southwestern Ohio Fishing. Enjoy life on the water.
