Pymatuning is a man-made lake with 70 miles of shoreline that straddles the Ohio/Pennsylvania border in Ashtabula County, Ohio and Crawford County, Pennsylvania. The lake serves to provide water to the Shenango and Beaver valleys, to lessen flood damage and to provide a great destination for recreation.
Two full-service state parks, each named "Pymatuning State Park", are on the lake in Ohio and Pennsylvania. A scenic 2-mile-long causeway bridge spans the middle of the lake, connecting the towns of Espyville on the Pennsylvania side of the lake and Andover on the Ohio side.
Walleye fingerlings (1”+), Fingerling muskellunge (4”-6”) and advanced fingerling muskellunge (9’-11”) are stocked annually by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and / or the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
PLEASE NOTE: *** You may fish the entire lake from a boat with only an Ohio fishing license. However, if you fish from shore or from an island on the Pennsylvania side, you MUST have a PA fishing license.***
