    I enjoy fishing paint creek and deer creek. Have heard many good things about rocky fork, but never fished there myself

    I would go for Dillon or Salt Fork even tho I have not caught anything of size but they are very nice lakes.

    most of my lake fishing is rocky fork or deer creek.i usually pass up paint creek on the way to rocky.

    if i lived closer,i would almost live on salt fork.

    It's easy. Chippewa Lake, the largest natural lake in Ohio and probably the most underfished resource in the state. Mainly because it has been private until lately.

    Right now Chippewa is not open to the public.....yet. We have to wait on the county to build a boat ramp.

    However, if you know someone who has access, I suggest you make a trip sometime. Catfish, Crappie, Bass, Perch, etc. etc. I plan on having a tourney there as soon as I can get permission.

    I would have to say Dillon first because it's closer. Then it would be Salt Fork!

    You will laugh but Miami Whitewater Lake. It is really small, but I can tear that place up.
