    Brother which Deer Creek do you mean? There are two that I know of,
    one is Deer Creek Reservoir and Deer Creek Lake that supplies water for
    Alliance Oh. As far as the reservoir, I can't help you but Deer Creek Lake
    is electric only, it is one of the best crappie lakes in the area. Cats go from 12 to 20 inches on average, bass fishing is great if your into that.

    http://www.gofishohio.com/lakemaps/gfoDeerCreekRes.php, here is the link for the lake. I live in Louisville and I drive north on route 225 about
    four miles, the road that leads to the lake is directly across from a small
    private airfield called Barber Field. The road is just south of the bridge
    that spans the first part of Berlin Resivoir. It is a nice small lake to picnic
    with the family if you so desire, also it has nice bank fishing.

    There are lots of nice channels in there. I always just bank fish off of old 207. Usually have to get there at a decent time if you want a nice spot, because it gest crowded on warm nights in the summer.

    James Ive never caught anything there yet but Ive only been there a couple of times. Shad/Gill/worm/stinky. Any of it should be good.
