Canoe the Licking River?

Discussion in 'Canoes & Kayaks' started by Whateversbitn, May 5, 2008.

  1. I was wondering if anyone has canoed the Licking River towards Black Hand Gorge? A buddy and I are wanting to put in near the basket building, and head toward Toboso. I would appreciate the location of a good "put in" spot.
    Also, is this a good area for smallies?

    Thanks,

    Put in at the basket and take out 11 river miles later. Can't remember the road name. Good Stretch.

  3. Well, we did it! We put in on Brownsville Rd. and floated all the way to the Black Hand Gorge. We caught 2 smallies and 1 rock bass. The smallies hit on a green tube, but I lost it. What a beautiful stretch of river! The Dogwoods and Redbuds were in full bloom. We also saw a Bald Eagle! Awesome trip!
