    You guys are great. Question on the falls if I could?

    I lived in Louisville for 7 years but never fished it. Curious on a decent place to put in and fish the falls of the Ohio. Second I have a motor guide 46lb thrust on a 17ft for bass tracker. Do you think that's sufficient and Last what would be an acceptable water level to fish it. I've always wanted to try over there. Thanks for any advice.

    You should do a search on the fossil beds...lots of good info on here. I would walk around the area and get to know the water levels and structure before taking a boat out. VERY DANGEROUS area. I would be glad to show you around when the water settles down. Chuck

    Please listen to Chuck when he says don't take your boat out there until you know the area. Lots of hidden dangers that a riverrat could tell you about.

    I've been fishing that area for years and I still get a pucker factor on occasion.

    Most definitely

    I have work on the river for over 14 years and one thing I know is if you don't know don't go. I definitely will heade the warning and make sure I have experience with me before I hit the water. Thanks again.

    The River

    It's all about knowing what to do and where to fish with the amount of dam they are running. Its constantly changing. One of the tools I use to plan a trip over there is the recording at 775-5056. Another one is the online graph. Both have current river levels and predictions. The recording will tell you dam levels.Both Chuck and Tyme are great guys to take advice from, they are spot on.Its a high risk, high reward type of place. I'll be there tomorrow fishing for sauger and will post a report.

    Just to add to the post by Bent Loomis, the area code is 502-775-5056

    I won't even plan a trip without calling that number. Chuck is a lot more adventurous then I and he fished some high water. Not me.

    All this talk makes me want to get on the river but my boat is in the Boat Barn trapped by lawnmowers, lumber, and other assorted items that have no business being in a Boat Barn. Besides that, it's still too cold for this soul to get on the river. Soon, very soon.

    Sauger report

    Well it wasn't a great numbers day, but the quality was exceptional. We ended up with 7 total. All but one were saugeye and they were jumbos. Every fish was over 3lbs ! These fish were gathered up in one spot and one specific depth so it was a little tricky to stay right on them with the wind and current yesterday. I do not anchor when sauger fishing so it was a lot of work running the trolling motor, but it was worth it. Water had great color.
