    I'm just a Rock throw from Newburgh Dam in Reed,Ky. The wife & I was on the indiana side about 4 day's ago at the Dam's Lookout & The water was still running over the wall. I'm not sure of the river stage to get back on the wall. I'll try & get down there this weekend & see if it's down enough.

    We farm in Reed and actually at the Dam, I think 32' puts it over the wall, it is well below that now 20.3' today 17.7' on the 29th and 16.9' on the 30th. Caught a bunch of skips down there right before it got over the wall. A little tip, I was getting a ton of small stripers using small jigs. I started biting them in half and got nothing but skips.
