Harrison Lake is located five miles southwest of Fayette, Ohio off US 20 between SR 127 and SR 66 on CR M. The lake was constructed in 1939 by building an earthen levee and concrete spillway across Mill Creek. The original purpose of the lake was outdoor recreation and is 95 acres with 3.2 miles of shoreline.The lake tends to be a little turbid, but the turbidity does not adversely affect fish in the lake. There is an abundance of fish structure in the lake including rip-rap, stumps, downed trees, Christmas trees sunk by the Division of Wildlife which provide excellent shoreline fishing cover for largemouth bass, bluegills, and crappies. Species populations also include an abundance of bullheads, channel catfish and carp. The channel catfish are maintained by periodic stockings by the Division of Wildlife.The best baits to catch bluegill are wax worms, red worms and crickets. Crappies are usually caught on minnows or small spinner baits. Popular artificial lures used to catch largemouth bass include rubber worms, crank baits, jig and pig and spinner baits. Baits that imitate gizzard shad work well. Bullheads, channel catfish, and carp can be caught by tight lining with worms or other prepared baits such as doughballs or stink baits.Harrison Lake State Park offers many outdoor related activities. The campground has 175 campsites. Other activities include boating [electric motors only], swimming, picnicking, hiking and other activities.
