A group of Ohio Boys were headed to Henderson this weekend to fish for monster Blues. To keep an eye on the water, we have been monitoring this site: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=pah&gage=owbk2&view=1,1,1,1,1,1 In looking at this we have discovered that there is a wall of water coming through with river levels fluctuating as much as 20 feet. It is going through Marietta today, Cinci tomorrow, Markland Sat, Henderson Sat and Sunday. My question is, at what water level above normal pool do you feel it safe to fish from a 14 ft boat? 16? 18? 20? How fast does that water flow, what stage does the debri get large? I would think that a 40 tree coming downstream at a 20 foot boat at anchor.... well the tree would win 100% of the time. Is it irresponsible to be on the river at any period over the action stage, flood stage, or before? Is the river too mean when it takes 12 ozs plus to hold bottom? I don't beleive there is any wrong answer, I just want opinions from you who deal with it regularly. I'd like to travel to some of these world class fisheries, but not at the expense of personal injury or loss of life. Thanks in advance for your time and information.
