    The following link has navigation maps of the Ohio river supplied by the Corps of Engineers. Unfortunately they do not show depth, but I use them and just pencil in the depths for the areas that I fish. These maps are actually quite useful and will help you identify manmade structures and even access points. http://www.lrl.usace.army.mil/

    CRAZYKAT,

    Once you get to the page I sent you, scroll down and on the bottom left click on the link to navigation information. On the next page you will see a picture of the Ohio river. Scroll down and click on Navigation Charts: Ohio/Green rivers downloadable. It will take you to another page. On this page scroll down and you will see the different areas that you can download. The one you are looking for is: Ohio River Cannelton Pool, charts 85-102. Click on this and it will download. It takes a while to download the whole file so be patient. If this don't help let me know.

    I have seen the book and I really don't like it much. You could get as much information out of a good atlas. the Navigation maps are much better and give good info such as access points, warm water intakes, and graineries. BEST OF ALL THEY ARE FREE!

    It is possible that I gave you the wrong set of charts. That page contains maps from Cincinnatti all the way to the Mississippi so try a different one. They are in order from west to east I believe. I know that Markland pool is the farthest east so go 1 set opposite of that. Sorry for the bad info!

    Does anybody know of one of these for the KY river?
    Some of us aren't lucky enough to get to the Ohio on a regular basis.:smile2:
