    thats too much water even at summer temps. the river is way out into the fields and the cats are spread way too thin to have good action at this height. i consider 8-12ft perfect height on this river. very predictable locations then:wink:

    calm down rooster, it will be time in a few weeks buddy. lol

    If you do a search for Louisville District Daily Lake Report then click on the link. This will show numerous lakes and reserviors in Indiana and Kentucky. The list will show flood stages, summer pool levels and even out flow. Then you can take a closer look at a specific body of water like J.E.Roush(huntington) lake by clicking on the name of the lake or reservior. Thses links will show show maps that have boat ramps listed. U can also find out about other recration services through this page. Have fun with this one guys! I use this a lot when fishing up north.

    your correct about the online river scales. i have been using them for about 8years now. i even had the temp on one of my rivers graphs,then someone higher up took it off.:sad2: all i did was contact the site talked back n forth a couple of times(to an obvious fisherman )and he said its there for ya. man that was great to know when to go try those spring flats,by temp readings, without having to waist time checking it manually. having info like that at your finger tips is invaluable and definitely upped my catch ratio!

    Yeah Tim, that's why I said it!

    When I was working in Massachussetts (sp?) a couple kids were swimming in the Conneticut River by our office when the water was high & 2 of them drown & they couldn't find the bodies. They asked us to go out on the river & set our gill nets to try to catch then when they started floating. I found some other pressing work to do that day. I've pulled some nasty stuff out of gill nets but at that time in my life I wasn't prepared to pull a dead boy out. I let some of my co-workers take that duty.
