Re: MAD river in ohio?????
Everyone, I've been fishing the mad the last two years becuase i go to school in dayton (about an hour away from the prime spots up in urbana). I havent been lucky enough to pull out lunkers, but there are plenty of trout. All are stocked every year in october, but they do seem to live there and for a long time. The trout cannot reproduce in the mad because it has been so channelized that there is no calm enough water for the fry to mull around safely. Overall you get great action running an elk hair with a small copper john dropper. I'd reccomend fishing at upper valley pike, 36, or rt 55. pimtown is also a good spot.
If anyone ever wants to wet a line with me on the mad this fall, shoot me a pm.
