    take rt 23 north to lewis center rd.. turn right(east) on lewis center.. go thru the stop sign.. and keep going straight. the dam and spillway area will be on your left..
    hope this helps..

    hey fishmason, i'm at OSU also. If you want to hit some spillways sometime let me know. I haven't done real well at them, but I keep trying. I hit Greenlawn today for about an hour with no luck. I have caught fish at Griggs once, so it is possible

  7. I would have to guess that there isn't much in the way of fish left in that hole. There has been a pretty steady group of 12-14 anglers fishing it everytime I have driven by.
    At somepoint the fish will start to fall back out of the hole entirely and we will have to wait, the more pressure that area gets the less likely it will be that anything will actually bite. I like to think of it as if I am steelhead fishing. The tailwater behind the actual hole ends up holding more fish than the hole itself. - I can't imagine that they will bite. WAY too much pressure.
    Just my thoughts
  8. Thats why you got to go to the other hole :cool:
  9. Went by this afternoon-- 7 guys fishing that one spot. :rolleyes:

    hey osu guys have you fished under griggs by 5th ave?there is also a faster way to get to alum from campus.take 315 to orange rd(just past powell rd turn on the old iron brigde) go till it ends and turn left you will be looking at the dam when you hit the stop the stop take a right the parking lot is about 600ft on the left.i live up here in worthington so if you guy want to fish sometime let me know.
  11. All i caught this weekend was one of those viruses going around. Heading back down to cincy this week to pickup my gear and head to BPS to spend some cash. Anyone open for this weekend PM me.
  12. Ying6 is right. I used to frequent that spot. Best times I had were cold, cloudy spring days when no one else was there. Using a rapala back behind the hole seems to be where they hold up.
  13. I noticed on the charts that they have opened up hoover again. I have Alum creek flowing up just about to my backyard at the moment. - And that isn't good since it is down the street! It is really flowing.
