    Licking river

    Im doing a remodel job at ryland heights country club so my question is two fold is there any good fishing at that part and can you get a boat up in that area coming from the ohio side and what is the average depth

    You can access that area with a boat from the Ohio. It's a lot easier in an aluminum boat through, there are some spots that shallow out a little bit when it's down in the summer, but I've never had to get out and pull the boat. It's a 17 footer so not tiny.

    I usually use the boat ramp on Locust Pike when I fish that area (It's an awful ramp and needs repair). It gets the job done though.

    Hit and miss really, but I've caught a ton of different species out of it. I love it because you never know what you've hooked into. I've seen a Muskie surface once in that stretch, although I had run way up in the river toward the Kenton/Campbell Co. line when I saw it but they are there.

    Ton's of flathead catfish if that's your jam.

    My only feedback is with the narrow/steep banks it's not fun to fish when it's up much. It gets some ridiculous drift running through it and a heck of a current. I fish the Ohio quite a bit while it's up, but don't mess with the Licking anymore.

    I live right on the Licking river. About 3 miles north of Ryland heights In Campbell county, Rifle Range road. I can catch largemouth, smallmouth, Kyís, sauger, cats and white bass. If the shad are there you can catch em. Best areas are above and below riffles. You can get a boat up past Visalia bridge about a mile. I donít recommend locust pike ramp, too many thieves and it is very shallow to put in there. Spring and fall are best. You can catch a few crappie here and there too, not much size.
