    Do anyone know what the water level is at Carlyle?

    My trip got canceled. The boys want to go fishing, but all the spots are under water right now.

    I want to get them out somewhere. Alot of guys are talking about mark twain. but thats a nice haul for me. I can go to Carlyle and back before I reach mark twain. but if the waters high there.....................I dont know where to go.

    Willie, the water levels on the Kaskaskia river are not up that much compared to normal levels so it will be a good spot to fish on right now. Make sure to pick up some no snag spoon style sinkers though, because there are a lot of rocks in the spillway area to snag on. If you are heading out that way you should try just below the area under the bridge that is right downstream from the dam location.

    Willie, if your just looking to add some eaters to the grease, I would suggest taking the boys to one of the spots on the lake it self, nice eating channels (been getting 1 to 9#) are hitting on just about everything from dip bait to crawlers, right off of any of the numerous rip/rap areas. and you can usually get some descent shad off of any of the ramps. Have been doing real good on the north end around keysport . (which is very easy to get to from I-70)

    Geee wander what your buying at a later date :smile2: Give me a call around 10:30 tomorrow, I'll let ya know if I can go or not, :wink: What you thinking on Harry? I'm thinking Coffeen maybe, see if any of the flaties are where they should be, and not have a 50 mph wind working against us...... Don't matter I guess, if any others want to try Carlyle for some BS fishing? If not then I am probably going to go Coffeen in the early afternoon until darkish......May even bring the dog so ya better watch yer self H

    Works for me.. It's the same distance both ways for me.. Do you think we might get a Crappie of two too.. It's all your fault, you got me started on Crappie.. Now I can't eat enough of them..
