    i fish the tug river on the ky/wv border, I know this GRATE fishing hole where you can accually walk out to the middle of the river and fish off rocks into a deep fast moveing hole of water, it holds flatheads and lots of 10 to 15 lb channels. problem is I can only get to this hole from the wv side of the river.. can i leagley park on the wv side walk down to the river and out to the middle of it and fish? if a wv game warden caught me would it be ok sence wv property dosent start till you get to the bank? also a couple years ago this part of the river was pushed over into ky by 100 feet to make room for construction in wv.... ant input?

    From what I can find out you will need a Wv. license.Your Ky. license is good to fish from the Ohio side of the Ohio river.Wish we had a Wv.-Ky. agreement like the one with Ohio.

    I would check with a game warden, it depends on where the state line is. You said they moved the river over about a 100 ft, that doesn't mean the state line was moved with it.
