Before the first settlers arrived in Hocking Hills, three Native American tribes made their homes near the Hocking River. The abundance of fish, turtles, and clams made the river a vital supplier of food for these tribes. Today, the Hocking River is still one of the best local fishing spots. Anglers can cast their lines in hopes of catching a wide variety of fish species, and you’re invited to do the same. Here is everything you need to know about enjoying a relaxing and memorable Hocking River fishing trip!

Interested in more outdoor activities like Hocking River fishing? Then you’ll want to request your free copy of our Hocking Hills Vacation Guide! It’s filled with all the best recommendations and suggestions for things to do during your getaway.

Hocking River Fish Species

The Hocking River, connected to the popular Clear Creek, boasts an ample population of freshwater fish. The mid and upper portions of the river have an impressive amount of smallmouth bass, and typical midwest species like channel catfish, white crappie, quillback, sauger, and more have also been spotted. Although the prime time for fishing is in the spring, summer fishermen usually find luck along the shore. The fish tend to hide in shaded areas with maximum covering, where the cooler waters are located.

Hocking River Fishing Points

Five miles of waterway is used for public fly fishing at Clear Creek Metro Park. You’ll find marked parking lots and signs leading to these access points. You can also reach the Hocking River by traveling down the creek in Clear Creek Metro Park.

Obtaining a Fishing License

In order to legally fish in the Hocking River, you will need to obtain a state fishing license. Here are four locations near the river that provide licenses to visitors.

Other Activities on Hocking River

If fishing isn’t your forte, there are plenty of other activities to enjoy on the Hocking River. Here are just a couple of our favorites!

River Trips

With an average depth of only 3 to 4 feet, the Hocking River is generally calm and is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and tubing in the summertime. Both Hocking Hills Adventures and the Hocking Hills Canoe Livery offer a variety of scenic trips for all skill levels. Our inn can pack a brown bag lunch for you to enjoy while on your journey. Canoe tours provide a peaceful, calm ride through the trees, and kayaks are fast and easier to maneuver – just be careful not to tip over! There are also points where you can pull your canoe on the shore and explore the Natural Rock Bridge just a short walk away. 

Camping

Guests can also spend a weekend roughing it on the Hocking River. One of the most popular areas for Hocking Hills camping is the Riverside Campground, where visitors can enjoy over 80 large sites complete with picnic tables, fire rings, and nearby flushing toilets. Many of the sites offer swimming access and are close to the Fun Center, which features mini-golf, go-karts, a driving range, arcade, grills, shelter houses, and a picnic facility.

5 of Our Favorite Hocking Hills Bike Trails

  1. Lake Logan Trail

Difficulty: Easy

For a leisurely ride nearby the inn, we recommend the Lake Logan Trail. The lake is one of the top fishing spots in Ohio and also provides plenty of picnic areas and secluded walking paths. A bike trail can be accessed on the north side of the lake and passes along boat rentals and the swimming beach.

  1. Lake Hope State Park

Difficulty: Moderate

Hocking Hills Bike Trails Located 30 minutes from the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls, Lake Hope State Park is a beautiful and peaceful place to experience nature at its finest. Within the park, you’ll find 8 biking trails that stretch over 23-miles. One of these trails was rated as the top mountain biking trail in Ohio by Mountain Bike Magazine! The downhill slopes will make the hearts of even the most avid bikers pump with adrenaline.

  1. Big Pine Road

Difficulty: Easy

This simple yet scenic trail is a favorite for many Hocking Hills visitors. However, its popularity can make it a bit crowded during peak tourist times. If you don’t mind sharing the road, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views of farm vistas and valleys. It’s also located near Conkle’s Hollow, one of the park’s most notable features, so don’t forget to stop by and take a look!

  1. Nickel Plate/Goat Run

Difficulty: Expert

We recommend this trail for more experienced bikers who can make the 600-foot climb! If you’re willing to take on the challenge, you’ll see some of the area’s most stunning farmlands. One tip shared by bikers who have conquered this 22-mile trail is to watch out for the sharp curve at the bottom of Moore Road. Otherwise, it’s a very relaxing and beautiful ride!

  1. Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Difficulty: Easy

Also known as the “bikeway through history,” the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway is 21-miles of scenic views and learning opportunities. It was named in honor the region’s first inhabitants, the Hockhocking, which means “bottleneck” or “twisted.” Along the trail, you’ll see Ohio University, serene woods, the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, and more!

Hocking Hills Bike Rentals

If you didn’t bring your own bike, the Hocking Hills Nature Trails is a great option for renting. They also rent ATV’s with guided or unguided tours!

Over the past few years, the Thunder in the Valley Fireworks has become the main event for a Hocking Hills Fourth of July. It is so popular that visitors from all across the state flock here just to enjoy it! Everyone gathers at Hocking College for vendors, games, and other patriotic festivities. Once the sun sets, fabulous fireworks choreographed to catchy music light up the night! The best part? You don’t even have to worry about driving and parking! Jump on the shuttle from the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway and join the fun once you arrive at the college.

Since the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls is bordered by the park, you won’t have to travel far to revel in these experiences! There are six major hiking trail areas in Hocking Hills State Park for you to discover including the popular Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, and Old Man’s Cave.  

The rock climbing and rappelling area is the only facility on state land in Hocking Hills that permits these activities. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, we highly recommend taking on the challenge! You’ll find nearly a mile of cliff ranging up to 100 feet with numerous slump blocks, rock formations, chimney, and overhangs that will make even the most avid climbers work up a sweat. As you climb, don’t forget to enjoy the lovely views of a hemlock forest backdrop. Once your feet are back on the ground, don’t forget to explore the nearby sandstone cliffs of Cockle’s Hollow!

The Midwest Glass Outlet, Hocking Hills Craft Mall, and the Hocking Hills Market can also be found nearby and offer visitors unique items they won’t find anywhere else.

The Columbus Washboard Factory is the only remaining washboard manufacturer in the U.S. If you foster an appreciation for unique art, watch the experts blow glass at the Ohio Glass Museum.
