    Guys I'm looking for the "Old L&D" locations on the Ohio River that can be fished from the shore and when torn down they left most all of the rubble/concrete/stonework in the water.

    I do fish "OLD L&D #9" up by the New Cumberland L&D and it is filled with tons n tons of snags so most all the locals will not fish it in the snags.

    The ones that I don't know about are numbers 12-16

    Netman Jack n myself r tryin to find the ones with the structure left and that can be fished from shore.

    I am not sure of those location, but it does sound like some good fishing. I fished a old blown up lock on the Ohio down by West Point KY and it held real good fish

    Let us know how those spots work out. I wonder how many old dams are in the smaller rivers. Knowing Ohio's extensive use of canals in the early 1800's it seems there should be quite a few
