    You can fish on the WV and Kentucky side of the Ohio River with an OH license, but remember you have to follow that states laws regarding everything else. Beware of daily bag limits. There is a list on the ODNR web site.

    Your Ohio license is good only where the Ohio River borders Ohio!

    Western Unit (Kentucky/Ohio border only) – Lawrence County west of South Point, and Scioto, Adams, Brown, Clermont, and Hamilton counties. Ohio and Kentucky will honor the other state’s fishing licenses along their common borders on the mainstem and from the banks of the Ohio River, excluding embayments and tributaries. The following regulations are the only unified regulations in the agreement – for all other regulations, anglers must abide by those of the state by which they are licensed, except that Ohio anglers must abide by Kentucky laws when fishing from the Kentucky shoreline, and Kentucky anglers must abide by Ohio laws when fishing from the Ohio shoreline.
