    The Huron River, which contains channel cats and flatheads. Anglers can expect channel cats to average 16 inches and flatheads to range from 20 to 40 inches. The entire river from Monroeville to Lake Erie should produce high-quality catfishing.
    Huron River anglers should also focus on deeper holes, which are not quite as deep as those found on the Maumee. A hole measuring 6 to 7 feet deep is considered a deep hole on the Huron.
    Access may be obtained to stretches that flow through private lands by asking permission from the landowners. Bridge rights of way are also a possibility. Then there are three public-access sites. The first is at the mouth of the river along Lake Erie. Anglers may access the river from the Huron Boat Basin, which is off state Route 2. The second access site is below the Monroeville Dam, which may be reached via state Route 20. The third site is the Milan Wildlife Area, which may be reached by following Lover’s Lane Road east off state Route 113.

    I've been going ot Huron for about 15 years. Pretty nice! Never caught huge ones, but you always get something from there. I always had good luck with using chicken livers

    bluegill, shad, sucker, carp any thing you can get, any thing cut up in strips or chunks will catch alot bigger channels or even a few flatties, try any live baitfish whole and theres no telling what you might catch, monter flats or a huge channel!

    the river runs right behind my mother n laws house right by the bridge. i lose alot of monsters down there. so many snags. And the fish always get stuck. But ive cought really nice cats out of there. At nite i always catch atleast 8 with in the 1st two hours. All rangeing ne where from 6 to 12 pounds. nice channels. But i no i lost some monsters n there. I wanna so over 40 pounds plus. I think i should find holes down from the dam. maybe a mile down stream. You think any random nice hole would hold a monster with in it..?
