    as of this morning, the downtown ramp was still closed, FYI...
    Might try the creeks up in the slack water, shad will be there.

    Look up in Marina's they seem to be the honey holes when the water is up, and like Mark said if you are going to fish downtown you may have to put in New Richmond or Tanner's and make the run.

    Something like that, it takes me about 20-25 minutes to get to the city from NR at 41mph.

    If your in the Cincinnati area and having trouble with bait may want to try the Licking River also. Should be loaded, may even see some good fish with the water up.

    Also u can probably drop in the Licking at the Wilder ramp(it's not closed as of last week), but I know the dock is gone, just like New Richmond. Also they may give you a ticket for parking their without a pass, but you can send them 10 bucks if so. Normally they dont seem to patrol and write tickets this time of year:wink:. It definitely closer to Natti, and you dont have to fight any current loading and unloading.
