Mogadore Reservoir

Mogadore Reservoir was constructed in 1939 within the valley of the Little Cuyahoga River in Portage County, Ohio and is owned and operated by the city of Akron. The fish populations in Mogadore Reservoir are managed by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. The reservoir has 1,104 acres of boating and fishing water with a maximum depth of 24 feet defined by a 27 mile shoreline.


Mogadore Reservoir provides excellent fishing throughout the year. Fishing from shore is somewhat limited, but the entire reservoir is available for boat fishing.

Fish species that are found in Mogadore Reservoir include largemouth bass, red ear sunfish, bluegill, black and white crappie, yellow perch, channel catfish, and brown bullhead. Channel catfish are stocked during odd-numbered years by the Division of Wildlife.

Ice fishing is very popular at this reservoir. Most of the fish caught ice fishing tend to be bluegill, crappie, and perch.

Anglers who catch a big fish should enter their prize in the Fish Ohio angler recognition program. A fish qualifies for an award if it meets the minimum size requirement set for the Fish Ohio program. Applications are available online at
