    Not to sure on that side of the bank, but the aberdeen discharge is directly across the river from you, and produces some fun fishing in the winter months. I do know that alot of the bank underneath the 2 bridges that go over to maysville have some pretty good dropoffs easily within casting distance, not to mention a nice set of ice breakers right underneath the old bridge. Nice current break right there, hope I could help a little. Those spots under the bridges I mentioned are on the Ky side. Welcome to the BOC!:wink:

    OHIO RIVER FISHING
    (KRS 150.170)
    An angler with a Kentucky fishing
    license may fish the entire main stem of
    the Ohio River from a boat, or a bordering
    state’s bank without buying the
    other state’s license (bordering states include
    Illinois, Indiana and Ohio).
    This does not apply if fishing a bordering
    state’s embayments or tributaries,
    which begin at a straight line between
    opposite points where the tributary or
    embayment meets the main stem of the
    river.
    Anglers fishing from a bordering
    state’s bank must follow the size and
    creel limits of the state where the angler
    is located. For example, a Kentucky licensed
    angler can stand on the Indiana
    bank and fish the main stem of the Ohio
    River without an Indiana fishing license,
    but must abide by Indiana’s size and
    creel limits.
    Reminder: No snagging for any fish
    species on the Indiana side or in any Indiana
    waters of the Ohio River.

    That is how it was explained to me also. Is there any difference where you put in? Can I put a boat in from a Kentucky ramp with an Ohio license and fish the Ohio?

    You just need a KY licenses to fish the entire stretch of river. You must obey the laws of whatever state your fishn in.
    It also states to obey whichever is more restrictive. EXAMPLE: If fishing the KY bank and your from Ohio you can't go back to Ohio with more fish than the Ohio law allows or you'll be in violation.

    If you put a boat in at another state, you must obey the laws of that state, just as if you were bank fishing, etc.

    Just remember , if you want to fish in any of Ohio's tribs including the discharge on Little 3 mile creek, you would need an Ohio license.
    So if you were on the ohio bank at Aberdeen fishing the main stem, you would b ok, but if you casted into the discharge, could be a grey area, I know the warden has a second house on the Aberdeen point, or so it seems....:wink:
