Lakes and Streams


Experience “Mother Nature at her best” while taking in Briarwood’s spectacular wilderness lakes. Water among pastoral backdrops is the theme here, and with 125 acres of lakes, one will never thirst for splendor. Take up the rod and reel in some of Ohio’s deepest bodies of water and catch yourself a Small or Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Walleye, Perch, Catfish, Tiger Muskie or Stripers.


Briarwood offers some of the finest dry fly fishing in the country, as natural hatches of aquatic insects occur regularly. Our spring fed streams are regularly stocked with Brown, Brook, Golden, and Rainbow trout. Briarwood has a series of 4 different stream sets, providing plenty of space and diversity, and a special trout fishing area for families with children. Our family fishing areas provide adults an opportunity to introduce fishing to kids, and allows them to use easier spin casting rods.
