    I have a buddy that owns some riverfront property just south of the T-Bridge in Devola. Fished of the bank near an inlet creek and put the boat in once with minimal success just wondering how the water is down here on the Muskingum. Has anyone had any success down here?

    There are a couple of private ramps on that stretch nothing public that I have seen, otherwise you have to put in at Marietta or somewhere above Devola and go through the locks. That is where I usually fish on the Muskingum.

    You can either launch at the boat ramp located at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Marietta, or from the Williamstown WV ramp, which is just across the Ohio river from Marietta. I ran up to Devols dam just the other day. Didn't catch a fish. Water was up a bit and a little dirty. Surface temp was 69, but that was before this cold front and rain. Yesterday evening the Ohio river surface temp was 64.
