    Yep it is already getting a little nasty. The public landing is closed and the only thing I could catch while cast netting today was a bunch of wood and a single white bass. I think it is going to be a while until I get out on the river again.

    Sounds like it would be a good time to hit the tributaries. The back water pool at the mouth that will be slow moving because the Ohio is so full. Have had good luck fishing these pools on smaller rivers before.

    I went this past Saturday down at the Maysville KY boat dock, and It was up about 2 feet and strong current at that time. I fished anyway, caught 6 mudpuppies. I figure fishing is a no go for a couple of weeks anyway. :(

    I was not going to fish this weekend anyway. Good thing is that means I won't have to hide and cry about the river being up. Now if I can't get in the next week you all will definitely hear me bawling...

    Travis and I are planning on kayaking this weekend! Were gonna start at maysville and end at the public landing in Cinci. My question is, will they let you lock through a kayak? It was his Idea, he saids it is easy so Ill give it a try! Would you guys trust him?

    When you enter the lock, grab a couple floating logs, put your yak across them, so when you lock down, you will have a pontoon! Be more stabile for ya Robin to land that big blue! :cute: rollo

    I am putting the boat in at the home plate of great American Ball park, fish on! I wish the river would flood backwards, so all of the nice fish would end up in our pool!:laugh1:

    Guys, the Muskingum is nothing like the Ohio and what you deal with, but I am considering going still this weekend. It is running around 15ft. right now. Heck, if I have motor issues I may reach you all in a couple hours, save me a spot! LOL.. rollo

    Robin shouldn't be talking, dude doesnt work all winter and I couldnt pay him to go fishing with me. He did say he was having alot of cramps, I know he had a pretty nasty yeast infection last week. Atleast thats what his wife told me when we went out to dinner!:kissing::wink:

    I went down and looked at the river yesterday, since I go to school right by it. It looks pretty nasty. I don't think I have enough weight to keep my bait on the bottom. I am thinking next thursday or friday may be a good day to go out again.
