    Normally catfishing from September to the end of October is the best time on the Ohio River. The river is clear, stable and the temperature is mild. NOT this year for the month of September has been very hot with heat index in the high 90’s. Then when it was not hot the rains pushed the river to...

    I will be getting a hitch installed on my car this week. If the river is in shape then I will once again be able to use my boat for catfishing. Hopefully I will be able to get caught up with a lot of trips on the river in the remaining weeks of this season. I know the month of September was...

    The Ohio River is still around 40 feet, muddy and fast current. Just about the time it is due to be fishable the rains are moving in to jack it back up. I have no real idea when I will be back on the river; or even fishing. For now everything is day to day until things settle down for me. I...

    July 26th. I picked up my grandson for a catfishing trip in my boat at 08:00. We got the boat in the river 08:45, but I noticed water coming in the back of the boat! So I had to get the boat back on to the trailer as quickly as possible before the water shorted out the batteries. We got the boat...

    May 15th. I checked out Schmidt’s ramp again. The small dock is in again. The big dock will NOT be put in until the river gets around pool stage for a week. That is what the guy who takes care of the ramp told me. The Ohio River will be up around 35 feet this Friday and Saturday here at...

    I checked out Schmidt’s field ramp today. I knew the river went up, but I did NOT see any dock set up! Not sure what happened, for they were putting the small dock in last Tuesday. When I talk with them it seemed they were also planning on having both docks in by the weekend. The Ohio is going...

It was cooler than I expected but the river was in good shape for fishing so we expected some action. We had...
