    I was wondering if anyone could point me to some decent spots in Circleville to fish from the bank. A friend said to fish below the old dam, anyone ever try it there. Thanks

    Lots of snags there..... it can produce big fish at times. There are a few other spots just down river from there too. But like any other decent bank spots the ones that are easy to get to are fished to death. Good luck.

    Ed, unless you are willing to walk along way, sometimes miles, good bank spots on the scioto are fished to death, believe me I know.

    A worn down path, leads to a fished out hole.

    I think what I am actually looking for is a place to park. I don't mind the walking, just take only what I need. Going out today, going to shoot for more then two hours:wink:

    Ed,

    I think you told me your boat is 15 foot flat bottom, right? If so have you thought about putting in at the Circleville ramp? If nothing else you could scout the area out and find a decent bank spot. A few years back I called and got verbal permission from a farmer to fish the exact spot where the Big Darby (think it was the BD) and Scioto come together. Flathunter and I were suspose to give it a shot, but never did.

    Got my motor fixed, the little lever that puts it in neutral came loose. Tried firing it up and it starts on the first crank, ready to hit the Scioto, starting in Circleville. I appreciate all of the advice I got, thanks.:wink:

    Ed,

    The only two public ramps I know of personally are the one in Circleville and the one in Chillicothe. I have seen other folks in the Chillicothe area have what seem to be home made ramps in the backyards or on their property. If you don't mind getting out and asking for permission, that might be worth a shot.

    I know that you get to the Scioto River via the Portsmuth area of the Ohio River as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Guys be carefull just south of circleville ramp there is a low head dam. it can be crossed BUT if you have never seen it crossed before i would go north. also just north of the ramp if the water is low you may be draggin but after you get past that you can go for a minute. there are alot of decent places up and down that stretch. also you can get the combination to the gate at the canal park and put in there it would be south of the lowhead dam. you get in this area let me know.

    I scouted some by the canal park, there were several spots that looked promising. I am going to go back when I have some more time to spend.
