    I was thinking of trying to fish the GMR this weekend if it is possible. I know with the weather we have had the river will probably be crazy. Has anyone seen the GMR around Cincinati? I would like to fish the area between the Whitewater river and the Ohio. If anyone has any info it would be much appreciated.

    I went out the other day up near Hamilton.. it was the night before the storms came.. and the water was already a little too fast... and the cats were not very active. In fact I only caught two 8-9lb channels, which were good fights, but nothing compared to the 6-10 fish I had been catching the previous few days.

    My guess is that it'll take a week for it to calm down... Cut shad and freshly dead (don't ask) creek chubs have been working really well. I broke my 30lb line on something big the other day... I really didn't want it to go into the log pile and it cut brand new line...

    8-9 isn't too bad for a channel! I wonder what the big one was. I get a little worried about getting to far in to those log jams myself, but that is where the fishes seem to like to hang out.

    with the warm air and the rising water try some backwater areas, you will do just fine, fish right where the main river meets the flooded area, wont take long to find a spot stacked up with cats..

    The Great Miami has been pretty high the last week but driving home this morning it looks like its dropped about 2 feet since yesterday morning down in the Ross,New Baltimore area.
