    Sure does look like it will be awhile before we get the chance to get out. Just think with all the rain in the forecast it's only gonna get deeper. lol.

    Took some pics of the Muskingum at Riverside and Ellis. The water level on the lock wall goes up to 24 ft., the river is at 22 ft. Not going to post any pics, it all looks the same:confused2:

    I'll work on it. The good news is the temps are supposed to be in the 50s and 60s the next 10 days, however they are predicting rain six out of the 10 days. That forecast was for Zanesville.

    We need to find a way to save some of that water for this summer. I have a feeling we are gonna end up with a nice dry repeat of last summer.

    I think you guys need to start letting some water out of there, otherwise I won't be able to get on the river to try it until next year:eek:oooh:

    Depending on the rain, I may try to hit the Scioto on Sunday. It seems to drop quicker than the Muskingum. Also saw that the recent rains brought the Muskingum up a bit at Zanesville according to the USGS site.

    seems the scioto and the gmr drop faster, probably because of the dams on the muskingum...and from what i have seen the water temps. are warmer usually than the muskingum.... too bad i don't live closer to them warm low water areas, don't get too far out in front this year jack!:wink: rollo

    I like to fish the stretch above Circleville. There is a boat ramp off rt. 22 and a private ramp south of Circleville. I do not know how to get access to the private ramp. I have only caught channels in the area because I have not targeted flatheads but there is some good water and structure so I would like try sometime. I mainly fish the Muskingum for flatheads.

    The scioto does not really drop that fast, theere is several dams up north on lakes that hold all that water back, as soon as it starts to drop a little, they let the water out and back up it comes.
