    Joker, here is a good Link to the GMR at Miamisburg but it shows the river about 1 mile down from West Carrolton area. Be sure to bookmark it!

    http://waterdata.usgs.gov/oh/nwis/uv?cb_00065=on&format=gif&period=31&site_no=03271500

    this shows the GMR is now about the lowest its been in about 30 days and 6" lower then when we had the GMR Outing so its plenty fishable right now.

    I know the river has some darkness in color right now so it "looks" higher then it really is.

    I havent been out in the last two weeks but Dinkbuster and Nightprowler have been getting out and getting a few decent fish as has Chubbahead, Im supposed to fish with him on Thursday so we will report any luck, good or bad...

    The current water level is about what to expect for the next couple months. The color is pretty dark. It will take a pretty serious rain to move the river at this point. All the feeder creeks will be bone dry by the end of this week.

    I fished with BigOnes this past Friday and Sunday. There was not a ton of activity on Friday, but BigOnes did catch a fish that was of nice size near 30 lbs. Total of 4 good bites with 3 caught. All were on BigOnes rods. Sunday was more active yet more frustrating. The intial spot we tried was full of snags and the bite was very timid. We missed 3 there. Once we moved, I picked up a small flat on a float rig there. We then proceeded to miss 3 more. One broke 100lb test just past the rod tip. We don't know if it was the fish or strain from previous snag. I will try there again in a week or so.

    We used live bluegills mostly off the bottom with 3 oz weights both nights.

    I fished there one time, one of the guys that was there w/ me caught a 25 # Flathead. It was sort of odd, we were sitting w/ our chairs touching the centerfield fense! Yes, I just gave you an idea where to fish! :lol: You have to have a rod w/ plenty of backbone becasue the current rips thorugh there, but there are nice fish there.
