    Don't fish that river much, usually on the Ohio, alot of guys on here do though. The bite has been tough everywhere and it isn't gonna change until we get some rain. Welcome to the site, I am sure someone who fishes that river more will give you some better info. This is a great site full of good people willing to help out.:wink:

    Is it done? LOL. I have to ask did it ever really start! Time to hit any deeper holes I guess but from the looks there are so few "deep" holes with the GMR near historic lows and getting worse every day. I think hoping for rain is pointless but I may be proved wrong. I would recommend based on results a couple of weeks ago to try your favorite places during the day actually. Others may disagree but Mark and I landed 5 or 6 total in daylight in 3 outings, much better than I did all year at night. My .02 :)

    The fish have moved to deeper water because of the decending water level butt if the water keeps on dropping we might be able to catch them on the lower roads with our cars lol i would fish good fresh baits in deeper water
