Fishing

Lake Snowden has ample shoreline for bank fishing.

There are plenty of bluegill for the younger fisherman. Other plentiful panfish found in Lake Snowden include crappie and yellow perch.

The largemouth bass fishing has improved dramatically in the last few years, thanks largely to the work done by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Bass measuring 12-15 inches must be immediately returned to the lake. In an effort to keep the fish population in balance, we encourage fishermen to keep bass measuring less than 12 inches.

For the easy going fisherman, Lake Snowden is one of the finest catfish lakes in southern Ohio. For the macho fisherman (or woman), Lake Snowden still holds some tackle-busting northern pike. In addition, a few delicious but crafty walleye may still lurk in the lake.

Fishing at Lake Snowden is free and open to the public but the Ohio Division of Wildlife does require persons age 16 or older to have a valid Ohio fishing license.
