Stillwater River in Ohio

Trip Overview

Took off from Englewood Dam fairly fast water, excellent fishing, smallmouth and channel cats caught on white roostertail, trip took about 4 hrs. 4 drops that are very interesting to beginners like myself. A few houses along the way, calm water most of the way down. I went alone, most of the water is very shallow and no portaging is needed. A very relaxing trip for excellent fishing and relaxing.
