Below is the verbiage pertaining to fishing. I hear the fish are biting! Have fun out there. Please note that we no longer have guest passes available online. A property owner must obtain a pass at the office.
FISHING A. Catch Limits: (Revised September 12, 2017)
Daily catch limits of fish are as follows:
Large/Small Mouth Bass: Catch & release only
Crappies: No minimum length, limit 10 per resident; guests are restricted to catch & release
Wipers: Catch & release only
Carp: No minimum length or limit; carp are an invasive species harmful to our lake water quality, and the habitat of the fish we desire; PLEASE DO NOT RELEASE CARP BACK INTO THE LAKE.
For all other types of fish caught, practice good judgment in conserving this valuable natural resource.
B. Guest Fishing: Guests are permitted to fish from the parks (access sites) and on the lake provided they are accompanied by a property owner or have with them a valid guest pass signed by a property owner. Passes are available at choctawlake.com and at the Lake Office. All fish (except carp) caught must be released back into the lake. The property owner bears ultimate responsibility for the compliance by guests with State of Ohio regulations and Choctaw Lake Rules & Regulations. (Revised August 14, 2018).
