    I am chomping at the bit to get out on the Ohio and drop a line or ten, right now we are still in the lower 30's ft range and it is coffee cream color! Has anyone had much luck fishing the river when it's so discolored and running like it is? I think I'll start fishing after this cold spell we are getting this week.

    I was looking at accu weather this morning and they are saying it is suppose to be in the upper 50's the last of next week. So it sounds to me like that will be good enough to be fishing. As for coffee/cream color go for it can't catch nothing on the couch at home. I've caaught some good fish in that color water early in the year (March) in particular.

    I normally don't fish the Ohio River, but it's better than not fishing at all.:cool2:

    I would think if we can get 3 or 4 days of warm days in a row the odds would be increased greatly on catching some cats

    Bill, the fish don't care what the temp is out of the water. The temp is the same under the water. This weekend looks like a good time to go because the water is stablizing.Like Ken said, as for the color it doesn't matter. Most catchfish don't use ther eyes anyway. I'll be on the Ohio Sunday with reels screaming...

    Looks like the end of next week for me. Hopefully spring will start early this year.

    Thanks
