According to Phil Hillman, an Ohio Division of Wildlife district fisheries supervisor, the wealth of available ice-fishing opportunities can be fabulous, but he cautions that hardwater action depends on the weather of the year.
Pymatuning Lake - known for many years as the lake of the 14 7/8-inch walleye (just under the 15-inch minimum length requirement) owing to the high numbers of fish in this size range caught during the early-spring season - is currently more a quality rather than a quantity water.
This 100-acre lake receives a health stocking of trout during the late fall, and some fish remain in the lake for the ice-fishing season.

 Coventry Township: The Heart of the Portage Lakes
The main path of travel was from the great Lake Erie to the mighty Ohio River, accomplished by leaving Lake Erie going south, upstream, against the current on the Cuyahoga River to its southern point where the canoe had to be "portaged" or carried across land to reach another body of water to continue south.
The natural lakes that existed at the summit of the great divide would be modified to supply this water, thus comprising the Portage Lakes that we know today.
Originally Coventry Township included the Summit Lake area and the Rolling Acres Mall area, with the southern end of the Portage Path being near the center of the township, but over the years large tracts of land were annexed to the cities of Akron, and Barberton.
