Salt Fork State Park - cambridge Ohio
My wife, son and I will be traveling back to Ohio this year, and we will be camping near Salt Fork State Park. I was wondering if anyone fishes this area, if float tubing is an option on the state park lake, what kind of flies I would need, etc.
From what I have found out so far (just started looking today), not a lot of trout there, but bass, musky, catfish, bluegill, etc so, at least there is a chance of hooking up to something using a fly rod while there. Not sure about techniques for musky or catfish on a fly rod (still researching). I am assuming there is not a big concern for water creatures that can take my leg off or major poisonous snakes, or any other creatures in the lake tha tcause major concern as they allow swimming and water skiing, but please correct me if I am wrong.
We will be in the area for about a week (visiting relatives), and if you are inclined to PM me with some hot spots to fish on the lake (much appreciated), or live in the area and want to wet a line while we are back there this summer please let me know.
