    Sorry man but it does sound fun. We have a trip planned around the first of June down in the derby area. We went last year and it was a blast. Indiana is very beautiful down there. Good luck, have fun and be safe on the water.

    I love fishing below the dam myself. There are 100+ lb fish in those holes just below the dam. The water can be a bit rough though... And there are 3 ramps within 2 or 3 miles of the dam. The Cannelton ramp, the Hawesville Ky ramp, and the Troy ramp. The Hawesville ramp is the closest, but the Cannelton ramp is almost straight across the river. But the ramps were loaded with mud 2 days ago. I hope they cleaned them off. Cannelton is my FAVORITE place to fish. I love it!!!

    at 5:30pm the parking lots at the boat ramps looked like ghost towns. No one was out there. I didnt see ANYONE in boats or on the banks.
