Deer Creek Lake was designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Deer Creek Lake project was first authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1938, for the purpose of flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement. Dam construction was begun in 1965 and completed in 1968. Deer Creek Lake Dam is a part of the larger comprehensive flood control plan for the Ohio River Basin, a system of dams that reduces flooding on the Scioto and Ohio Rivers by holding back flood water. The estimated monetary savings in flood damages that been prevented downstream of the dam has surpassed the construction cost of the dam. In addition to flood reduction, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers works in cooperation with Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Parks and Division of Wildlife to provide lakeside recreation and fish and wildlife management. Restrooms are located at the Project Office, Dam, ODNR Deer Creek State Park Campground, Harding Cabin Area, Marina, Beach, Picnic Areas, Lodge and Cabins, and the Golf course.

Deer Creek Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I find the best crappie fishing just below the dam in the spillway. Using crappie minnows set about a foot and a half below your float with light weight on your line. In a matter of a couple of hours me and a friend have caught upwards of 50+ fish. It makes for a great time.

This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
