eBird Bar Charts by Season
LaDue Reservoir lies in southern Geauga County approximately 30 miles east of Cleveland, at the intersection of US-422 and OH-44. OH-44 lies along the west side of the reservoir and US-422 crosses the reservoir.
LaDue Reservoir was constructed in 1963 on a tributary of the Cuyahoga River to provide additional water supply to Akron. The Division of Wildlife began managing the fish populations in the reservoir in 1983, under an agreement with the city of Akron. The reservoir is situated in an area of glacial deposits characterized by numerous kames and small relict glacial lakes and ponds. Ground cover in the surrounding area includes marshy, wooded, and meadow areas. The lake bed retains the humps of the surrounding land. Aquatic vegetation is scarce and consists mainly of milfoil and curly pondweed.
