Best Fishing Bets
Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill and Catfish
St. Marys River Fishing Tips
Redbreast Sunfish and Bluegill - Chances of catching a 6-inch or larger redbreast sunfish are excellent. The river also supports a healthy bluegill population, and fish weighing 3/4-pound or greater should be fairly common this year.

Technique - For redbreast sunfish: Crickets and worms are a given; small lures, such as beetle-spins work well when the water warms. For bluegill: Crickets and worms around cover in the creeks and oxbows of the lower river are the best bets.

Target - Try launching a canoe or small jon boat at St. George Landing and floating downstream approximately 30 miles to Traders Hill for excellent redbreast fishing. For bluegill: Target the lower half of St. Marys, from Traders Hill Recreational Area downstream.
Catfish - fishing should remain good this year. The river supports healthy populations of yellow and brown bullheads, channel catfish and white catfish.

Technique - Use worms, chicken livers, cut bait or your own secret bait fished on the bottom.

Target - Fish the deeper holes, which are usually located on outside bends in the river.
Other Fish Species - Though bass are not as plentiful as in other rivers, anglers can land a wall-hanger.

Technique - Try casting spinnerbaits and pitching jigs or worms around heavy cover in current breaks or backwater areas.

Target the Kings Ferry area of the lower river.
