    I was just woundering who all out here fish the wabash river and if you all have any luck? I fish it around the peru and wabash area and have some luck this year but the water is way down and there is not very many deep holes around this area so they are getting fished pretty heavy..I am looking for some new places to try out any input would be nice....keep your lines in the water

    There is a put-in in Delphi, which is just south of Monticello. Right there the Tippi runs into the Wabash. The water level is low like you said, but there are some nice holes where those two rivers meet. Good luck!

    smoke, i dont think i have given you a welcome yet,so welcome aboard brother. i dont get on much, in the summer, for obviouse reasons.

    our rivers are low again this year for sure bud and i find the holes getting fished out or are just plain unproductive after a couple of fish. in my opinion i think they eat all the bait and are forced to move out and find food. we have been scoreing fair catches of flatheads by jumpin from spot to spot. a single small current break is enough to hold a large fish( or small lol ). just dont get hung up on one spot. time spent depends on how big the piece of cover your on. a big log jam will get our attention for 45in. a single rock mite just get 10min.

    catfishing is growing fast, so spead the word about the importance of catch n release, or our trophy fish will be no more!

    tight lines all,and again welcome to the b.o.c. kris

But i would recomend the Terre Haute area too.... And i wish you the best of luck.. If your ever in Indy give me a yell we will hit the White River and hope we catch some hogs
