    Into spring? I hope not.

    The river I fish is back down to 2 feet below normal, usually we have some rain in late fall and winter that really brings her up.

    The scioto has only been up below normal a couple times since summer.

    I hope we get some spring rains this year, or we might be in for a long hard season.

    I hope not.I had a terrible year last year.But we still have a bunch of spring rain that we usually get and when all this snow melts it should add to the levels too.Got my fingers X'd

    Hopefully the rivers will be better this year. We'll just have to hope and see. Last year it was rough locating fish or even getting to them. Like Joey, I'm keeping my fingers crossed as well...

    I know where your at bro.. The muskingum was up a good bit for a while, but it has dropped off hard also. I imagine when all this snow and ice melts it should help. Definetely need some spring rain, but not a wash out! LoL.. Can't wait for them warm nights again, listening to all the outdoor noises on the water.....rollo

    I usually keep it silent in the boat when I fish, but sometimes just get the itch to go setup on a mediocre spot and turn on the radio and relax. Not worrying about the fish as much as having a good time after a long week at work.. Country and the river goes well together brother:wink:.....rollo

    The county is replacing a bridge just north of roundtown. I think they are gona build some kind of levee across it to get thier equipment out there. That might just impede the water a little. We will have to wait and see.
