    Walked down to check the river this morning around 0600, and she has risen about 4 feet, according to West Point's measuring system. The water is flowing just under my neighbor's dock. Huge logs coming down out of the Salt. She looks very swift with more rain to come. As my neighbor says, you spend 99% of your time looking at her, then she will come up and look at you!! :001:

    Cool, we needed that... Maybe it'll clear up this weekend in time for everybody to fish.

    Thanks for the update.

    The water levels have been so low this year in cincy, we need a good hard continuous rain..It takes ALOT to get that big river up to where it is unfishable..According to the cincy gauge the river was at 26 ft last night, if it came up 4 ft, that puts it right about 30 ft, which is pretty much PRIME TIME fishing.

    thats awesome the fish feeding closer to shore ...that means i have somewhat of a chance. now all i need to do is convince my wife that its a good time to go fishing and she should let me go.
