    What is the closest free boat launch to Yellow Creek, north of the New Cumberland Dam?

    Sorry I can't help with that one. I used to live in Steubenville, but I never fished north of New Cumerland.

    Thanks anyway. Yellow Creek looks like a great smaller tributarty to fish, but I usually launch in Toronto and that is a haul with a 9.9 and having to lock through. Wellsville has a ramp, I think, but that is a little ways up river. I wonder if there's one on the WV side near Newell or Mountaineer.

    Thanks Roger. That is helpful. We should hook up and fish sometime this year. I live down on Findley St. in Toronto. I'm new to fishing the big rivers and would love the oportunity to learn from some more experienced river rats. Get in touch sometime.

    The one in New Cumberland behind the firehouse has some excellent holes very close by and the fastwater is pretty close too.

    You have some excellent excellent spots not 5 minutes away from the Toronto ramp too.
