    Anyone have a link to "real time" Ohio R. stream flow speed?
    I have found water levels but not speed.

    You're right, no direct discharge rate measured/reported for Ohio RIver. But, you may be able to correlate Stream FLow history with Gage Height in this link and get a good idea.

    Thanks!
    So, working with that and figuring the water at pool, it works out to roughly 1 1/2 mph.

    Sounds slow, did I do the math right?
