Northeast Ohio is a hub for fishing enthusiasts and two areas in the Mahoning Valley are good spots for muskie and giant flathead catfish.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) highlighted the upper Ohio River in Columbiana County as a great spot for giant flathead catfish. The agency says to fish along the shoreline where there is wood debris and deep water.

Pike Island and New Cumberland navigational pools are two of the best spots to find catfish. The daily limit for flathead catfish is one fish longer than 35 inches with no limit for shorter fish.

If you're looking for muskie, ODNR says to head to Lake Milton or West Branch Reservoir in Mahoning County.

According to the release, scheduled water releases out of the Berlin Lake dam let in cool flowing water where muskie are usually caught. The cool water flows into the part of the Mahoning River that connects the two reservoirs and creates a muskie habitat upstream in Lake Milton.

The agency says to cast toward the fallen trees in the upstream habitat to find them. The muskie daily limit is one fish with no minimum size.
