    I can't imagine why anyone would be down there fishing at 3 am with the river raging. People just don't know just how quickly you can be in peril on the Ohio. Sad, yes but not very good judgement

    Put in at Cox Park, run up to Harrods Creek. Fish any of the inlets and bays they will still let you fish. Stay out of Captain's Quarters unless you want to risk a $200 fine.
