Matt, the Ohio up and down in my area. fish one day but not the next.:angry:

Danny, we live pretty close but I haven't seen it fishable in a while. Last I heard it was supposed to crest at least 50-51' just a little below flood stage at the Greenup L&D. Matt, its all coming your way too.....:sad2:
I'm dying to get out and bank fish the Ohio but its just not safe where I usually go.

you guys aren't the only ones. the muskingum is a mess, and im sure they are holding plenty back above to save those south of here. the bad thing is, with spring here, a day or two of rain a week will keep things elevated and unstabile for a long time. I have seen this high water issue drag clear into June and July before. I hope this isn't one of those years......rollo

Matt you might want to have some lakes as back-ups. The river is a guess at best in the spring.Look at last year or other tourny`s. Lots of cancellations due to high water . I know alot of guys love the river but fishing other places is not all that bad.Might even get more to show? Let us know whats up.

Got any suggestions on lakes Randy??? Maybe Eastfork or Rocky Fork, Ceasars Creek, some place like that?

Matt any lake is good.Just keep the guys and gals fishing.Put a poll up and ask what lake people like? We like to fish new water.Helps make a better fisherman out of you imo. Randy

East Fork is a good lake Matt, only problem is come spring you have tons of crappie and bass tourneys, might be the same at other lakes just not sure. Cattin tourneys at night are better at lakes IMO for the simple fact you dont have all the other tourneys going on, but also early in the year in good ol southern Ohio, overnight spring tourneys good produce blizzards and sub zero temps...:smile2:
