I don't know about your location, but down here in southern ohio the river is over the banks. Not much fishing going on, unless your fishing the field bottoms. Not to discourage about the time of year, because last year at this time I caught 20-30 channel cats a day for about 2 weeks. Everything was small, under 5lbs, but was a blast! Caught them in a log jam next to a wintering hole. Soon as the river gets back down, I'll be out there....Good luck though, you never know about this river.
