    Drove down to Merom to check out the River today. These are some pics taken from across the parking lot at the ramp. The 4' tall Merom Boat Ramp sign that sits above the top of the ramp is about to go under.

    The first pic is from a lookout landing viewing across the drive, parking lot, ramp, and up river.
    The second pic is looking west across the river.
    The third pic is looking back up the walkway from the lookout landing to the drive down to the parking lot and ramp. The water is about to get the shelter house. Thats my truck in the background.

    No, the road down to the ramp is still open and there is still room to turn around in front of the shelter house, but the parking lot is under water. Its goin to be a while before it goes down and DNR gets it cleaned up. Its at 21.5' right now.

    As far as i know its just a public shelter house, the ramp is managed by DNR and the shelter is at the ramp, sounds reasonable to me. LOL

    Well folks, it looks like the river may finally be fishable by next week. I think I am going to put in some quality time at Clinton.

    I sure hope so Scott, you go tear em up at Clinton, If she gets down around 12', I think I'll hit Darwin or Merom. If she don't, I'll go see if the crappie have fired up on Sullivan. Good luck.

    Any of you fellow's seen the ramp at Clinton lately, is it clear ..is there still a wal-mart on the west side of town where a guy can buy a Indy fishing license?it's rainning here but hopefully it wont rain up north and raise the wabash again.
