    I am wanting to know where( city, state) does the Tennessee dump into the Ohio River..I am wanting to fish somewhere that I have never fished before, and I figured right around that area would be some good fishing, that way i can fish the Ohio, and run up into the Tennessee to fish it.Also from there, how far would the cumberland be...I would like to make it a 3 day trip..fish the Ohio, the Tennessee, and the Cumberland if it isnt to far away..

    The Tennessee and the Cumberland both dump into the Ohio River at
    Paducah, Kentucky. Not very far from each other. The TN dumps in right near downtown Paducah, and the Cumberland dumps in up river about 6 or 7 miles. All three Rivers have some Killer Catfish. Try drifting with Cut bait about 5 feet off the Bottom

    Okay thanks for the info..Now the question is, do you think fishing would be better in the paducah area, or in the Louisville are of the Ohio River? If you had to choose, where would you go?

    I Know the Fishing is Good at Paducah, I have fished There and up around Henderson, KY. River is loaded with Catfish. I know nothing about the Louisville, area.

    I caught the fish in my avatar in Henderson, KY

    Yes, its only a little over a hour upstream from Paducah. Great blue cat fishing when the temps cool off and when the Ohio builds up a little current.
