    no idea of the water temps, but the flatheads felt like ice cubes.

    The water temps here in Huntington West Virginia on the Big O are at 61 degrees right now. That's coming from my water intakes that are around 20ft deep.

    Power got knocked out at work so I got off early. I hit the river alone, Ran into some buddys on the bank and picked them up. Surface temp was 49 on most of the river The area affected by a warm water discharge was 54.5 deg. I got nothing in the cold water. However the fish were very aggressive in the warmer water. Nothing Huge low 20's was the largest. We caught a bunch though:wink:.

    Nice going Jack!! BTW, I bet if you asked the guy up at the baithouse, you know, the guy you paid for the "pass", he could probably tell you the lake tempature.... :wink::wink::smile2:

    Ohio River at Cinci was 59.5-61.5 today according to my Fish finder and a whopper of a 1 lb 13" flattie was taken today.....

    the GMR is currently at 57 degrees (10-23-09). i am guessing the scioto is a degree or two higher since the GMR has a much faster current flow.
