The New Year of 2011 Ohio River Sauger action is just around the corner. The Ohio River pre-spawn Sauger action is just about to begin. As January’s chilly water slowly begins to rise to stable and warmer water temperature of 40+ degrees and greater, Mother Nature’s pre-spawn Sauger action will take off again during the months of Febrauary, March, and April…2011.
The bigger female Saugers will begin showing up in the lock entrances. These big noticable female Saugers will be puffed up with huge egg sacks as they begin their natural pre-spawning process of traveling upstream to lay their eggs. Spawning Saugers come to a dead end at Meldahl Dam and other Ohio River Dam’s throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia geographical areas.
Between February and April, these Ohio River Sauger, Walleye, and Saugeye that come to dead ends at Dams and Locks, begin their yearly spawning ritual which in turn, brings in some excellent fishing days for those who don’t mind cold weather fishing conditions. I look forward to some “great” fishing days as pre-spawn Sauger action begins its peak biting period from now… until around April.
It’s been slow fishing in January but that will change…soon. Get ready for some good Sauger action that’s just around the corner. Keep you finger’s crossed that Mother Nature doesn’t allow the spring floods to blow out the Ohio River. Don’t forget about Father God in the process. Thanks for stopping by Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog. I appreciate your viewing and look forward to writing some great fishing articles in the future. God Bless!
