    The fish I'm holding in my avatar is one of many fish I caught on the GMR. I grew up in Hamilton county, before moving to Northern Ky. 3 years ago.

    I have fished it quite a bit the last few years after graduating from park ponds and my PB was 31 pounds last year around this time and have 22.5 so far this year last week among other 5-10 pounders.

    welcome and I fish the GMR in Hamilton 2 or 3 times a week. I have caught a lot of channels and several nice flat heads. I fish below the new dam in Hamilton and nice fish are being caught there.
