    I just wanted to let you guys know that there is really something to watch out for. i was fishing alot this past summer down on the siota river just past siota downs. well anyways i got some kind of a fungus on my foot from standing in the water and has taken over 4 months for it to clear up. so just be carful and watch out not to wear sandles in the water there.

    Thanks for sharing. I tend to keep my boots on when I have to enter the water. Never know what you might step on.

    I caught a channel cat this summer that had some funny looking bumps on the side of it. I also have been in the water more times than I would like because of mishaps and that's bad since I fish from a boat. Never had any health problems as far as I can tell. I fish the Scioto from Circleville north to Cook's golf course.

    When I fish/wade headwater streams Im much more apt to wet wade but the lower reaches of the GMR for example, I usually wear waders , more from the point of getting a cut on rebar or broken glass , etc. and worried about nasty infections, I fish below one of the dams in Downtown Dayton where the whole area is chunk concrete with rebar sticking out of it and with the algea bloom of summer and about 1" of visability, I always wear waders there for the extra protection.

    Are you sure you just didnt pick up a variation of Athletes foot??? That stuff can take all sorts of shapes and forms and can easily take 4 months to wipe out even with Lamisil prescriptions!

    My son and i took a few canoe trips from Circleville to Chillecothe last summer. Waded alot and even swam on the hot days. Neither one of us had a problem with fungus or anything else.

    I think it could happen if you get that river water into a sctatch that was already there..Myself I have had so much of sciotos water in my mouth over the years I dont worry about it.
