Right now they have every gate open at the dam. Will probably still be dumping water this weekend as well.

Ditto That! snake. At least on the WV side.


Now's the time to try the Ohio side below the dam bank fishing.
From the 600' marker down to the trees.
The eyes try to get out of the real fast water when the pool is 16'+.
That's when we do the best,,,, cast real far out and try slow draggin' the bottom with jigs, gulp paddletails & twisters or fatheads on a crappie stacker rig with about a 2oz no-roll sinker.
Here's the link chubz
http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydro...pbz&gage=ncuw2

Still a tad high water and most likely chuck-full of leaves and garbage!
Somebody's got to check it out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,????
I lost the number of that new bait shop at the red light/ parking lot, Ohio side. Does anyone know it?

The name is riverside market. Don't know the number, but a google search should pull it up. The town is stratton, Ohio.

Actually' when I wrote that, I had just got out of work early and was headed to Berlin Lake. I should've wrote 17 to 18' is the approximate height. And Jerry, if it hadn't been so late, I contemplated going to the Ohio side. I just think the water has to go down another 8 to 10 degrees. I think it's still a bit warm to do much good. I know a few people who have made trips over the last 2 weeks with no success.. If anyone goes, I'd like to hear of it..!

Hey Thanks Jeff, Nice Pic,,, Nice to hear from you,,,,
I was wondering if your 'getting out' any?

I was hoping you'd give me a call after we posted those Erie perch pics,,,thought for sure you'd get the 'bug' to come up, I still owe you a trip?

Are you fishing the River after work?
Let me know the next time you go,,,
Thanks

Thanks Bub.
I called,,, They have crawlers and SOME fatheads. They are expecting a shipment of bait. Guess I'll play it safe and stop at 'REDS' in N Lima.

Jeff,
How ya doin there? I and the wife will be down there this Fri. The weather looks good and the water will have settled. I'll give you a call this week. I'm dying to get the fall season off to a good start, and the river should do it. Been doin' good at the lake, but I'm about to put the boat away for the season..so you'll see me, Mark and probably Steve down there pretty soon. Talk to ya this week!

I've never seen anyone wade the river at the Cumberland dam or across on the Ohio side. Now further down river at the Pike dam, some people do wade.
