    When you coming out to fish with us old folks Josh?

    We'll be on the water in about 2 1/2 hours on the upper Muskingum and will report back this evening.

    When it warms up, I'm game for fishing when ever I can. Just let me know when you want me to go with you.

    Water was up approx 2 ft on the Muskingum, bait was not cooperating. We went to Dillon caught a 5 gal bucket of shad and got skunked. Water at the dam was 49 degrees. Up by the beach it was 56. We drifted the dam, the point, the tunnel, the beach and still fished the area across from the beach in the channel.

    It is coming soon just not now!

    Strictly a guess, but I'd bet it is right at 49-50 degrees. But, no, we went to Dillon instead.

    I'm giving the temp a chance to increase. I'm going to hold off until Sunday. My problem is I can't decide where to go. My choices are the Muskingum, Scioto, or Dillon. I have never fished Dillon so it may be between the two rivers.

    Phil thats a real problem you got there lol. Where, where where? Sounds like dillon is the warmest between the two down here. If the sunshine holds then by next weekend the river should be mid to high 50's ( I hope ). It's never too early to get a feel for dillon. I have fished it twice a year for the last few and still can't catch a cat there yet lol. But I never targeted channels so thats probably my problem. Good luck wherever you decide to go.

    I guess I'm waiting for someone to post a current temp for the Muskingum. Would I be wasting my time going to the Muskingum for some early season flatheads? If channels is all I'm going to get them there are closer places for me to go fish.

    the temp. this afternoon out of dresden was fluxing between 50 and 52 on my boat. just depending on the area you were in. i would wait for this warm spell, and plan your trip for maybe next weekend.:smile2:

    Thanks a bunch for the update Jason. Maybe the next few days will bump it up a degree or two. I still may head to the river,I can do some scouting if the fish won't bite.

    Game on fellas! 57 degrees and change today! Channels were hitting willingly in Wills Creek and on the Muskingum. Got 4 from bait to 8 from 10 am to 1:00pm. 2 biggest at 12:30pm.

    Everyone that knows me knows I hate to be cold. I like this daytime fishing thing. Instead of coming home half froze, I came home with no shirt on.

    Easy ladies, don't swoon.... Caint touch this! :eek:oooh: :big_smile: :lol:

    When you say the main lake, are you speaking of the area by the dam? Wed. it was 49.9 but up by the tube it was 53-55 and up by the beach it was 57.

    My stretch of the Musk was 2-3 degrees warmer than yours Sunday :tounge_out:
