    Has anyone fished down there since we had all this rain. It looks like it came up 13 ft in 2 days. Just wonder if the fish are biting. any replies.

    Darryl, I'm not sure about Cannelton, but here where I live upriver from Louisville we have been doing good. My brother and i got 9 cats fishing the banks up here on shad today. The biggest was a 20 pound blue. Vern

    I believe it's one that some low life has dropped off to make it's own way in life. I hate when people do that!! I've seen it running up and down the bank for the last couple of months.

    on the fly were you in aboat or on the bank? what bait was you using? I need to catch at least one nice size cat before it gets to cold. getting older cann't handle the cold like i use to.

    I fish there from both but yesterday we were on the bank. I mostly only use cut shad or skips.and yesterdays were cought off of cut shad. but the big guns shoud start movin in , in about three more weeks. I thought the curent was a little too strong we started fishing from the big rocks for about an hour then went to IN side and cought are fish there on the lock side. we were on that side for about two hours then had to go it sucked caz the fish were still bitting when we had to leave.

    Glenmore that is what i thought it was,i been see him since july. One of the drums i caught i threw it up in the area he was hang out. it is a cute dog . i hate people who do that to animals. i guess he has been there for along time cause he stay away from people.

    On the fly i think i know were you are talking about.I found that area by accident. I got lost the first time going to the dam. Went today not a very go day with weather like it was. water still moving very fast. there was a crane set up in the middle of the dam doing something. I did catch 2 stripe bass about 3 lbs a piece. next time i will try your spot. you said the bigguns will be moving in about three weeks,i hope i catch one then. see ya on the bank or the water.

    yeah that crane started out in the first gate on the ky side they must be doing a annual check/ repairs on the gates. I'll be glad when their done. The water will calm down alot after the are able to use all the gates. I was there lthis past monday and the have three gates on ky side open ,the four in the middle are shut down and other 5 from the locks are open.My ol man and I are looking at spending the day over there tomarrow, not shure if we are going to use boat or not yet.
