On Sept 25, 2014 Area One biologists electrofished the lake for Young-Of-Year (YOY) Walleye. In two hours of effort, 60 YOY were collected for a catch rate of 0.5 YOY Walleye per minute; just under the long range average. Also noted were a few adult Walleye, some pike, bass and many small White Bass. Boating traffic has been down. Fall is a beautiful time to go boating on the reservoir. The lake levels are still up but slowly receding. Use caution when boating around the sandbars and shoals that are just under the water’s surface. Crappie are starting to pick up around the reservoir. Anglers report that they are thickening up for the winter. A large number of fillet sized Bluegills are being caught as well. Catfish and Largemouth Bass fishing is also progressing very well.

Ken Smith (Sharon); filed 9/30: “I fished Shenango on 9/28. It was a slow day for keeper-size crappies, but I managed to put 10 over 10 inches in the livewell; the biggest was 14 inches. The lake is slowly turning over with surface temps higher than normal for this time of year. The smaller fish are schooling but the bigger ones are scattered in the deeper water. I would catch a couple at each spot and then move on. I could have kept a lot more that were fat black crappies but I didn’t feel like cleaning a lot.” (See Livewell photos) Jim McClave (Mercer); filed 9/30: “I’ve been to Shenango twice in two weeks. I’m getting crappies at the railroad bridge near Mahaney. I’ve been docking up at the concrete pylons right under the bridge. Catch-ing crappies on minnows fished near the bottom. Most are small, but getting a ‘decent’ one every now and then. Nothing like big ones at Pymatuning…I wonder why Shenango’s crappies are always smaller than Pymatuning?” Al Moore (Cochranton); filed 9/23: “I fished a bass tournament on Shenango on the 20th. I caught 14 bass but not one of legal size. I went back the next day to figure them out…caught a 5-pound 1-ounce large-mouth and 3-pound smallmouth plus several two-pound bass – all on jig-n-pig. I would have won the tournament the day before if I had that catch!” (See Livewell photos) Bill @ Griffins Bait & Tackle; filed 10/3/13: “The father of customer Tom Carr caught a 30-inch 13-pound striper at Shenango Lake.” (See Livewell photo) Wilhelm Marina—db photo Mr.
