Antrim Lake was originally a quarry pit before it was filled and the surrounding area designated as a city park. The resulting water body has a tremendous variation in depth up to 30 feet, a primarily gravel bottom, and extremely clear water.

Fishing Description: 

Antrim Lake has populations of bluegill, largemouth bass, channel catfish, and carp. Catchable (10-12 inch) rainbow trout are stocked by the Division of Wildlife in April and October.

Brood stock rainbow trout (2-6 lbs.) are stocked annually in November the day before Thanksgiving. Yearling channel catfish are also stocked every other year.

Fishing Tips, Tactics, How-To info: 

Fish for rainbow trout after stocking events. Try using trout bait, corn, cheese, nightcrawlers, or waxworms fished under a bobber or on the bottom. Also try casting for these cool-water fish using spinners and twister tails.

Bluegill can be caught throughout the year using redworms, waxworms, or nightcrawlers under a bobber.

For channel catfish use nightcrawlers, minnows, or shrimp fished on the bottom.

Use soft plastic baits to catch largemouth bass along shoreline drop-offs.

The current state record saugeye (14.04 lbs) was caught in Antrim in 2004. Saugeye are not stocked in the lake and this fish likely entered the lake during a high water period from the adjacent Olentangy River or was transported there by an angler.

Directions to Lake: 

Antrim Lake is located in Franklin County just east of Rt. 315 in northwest Columbus. Access to Antrim Park is located off of Olentangy River Road approximately one mile north of Bethel Rd.
