  4. i was getting them on the KY side at Meldahl dam. i will post the next time i go down. any one is welcome to go. it would be great to meat a few more of the OGF members . Doc is the one who took me my first time, he is a good ole boy . heck my first time down to the dam fishing for skipps i cuaghta 8lb flatt head on a skipp jack rig , Doc took pics.
     
  5. I have a couple questions about accessing this area. I love catching skipjack on a fly rod. Is there enough room at the KY Meldahl for a long rodder to cast? What is the bank access like? How far out are the skips holding?

    TIA

    Tight lines...
     
  6. there is plenty of room when the water level is down, most of the bank is rock, flatt rock, the skipps will be from the dam wall to the bank, i have them hit 2 ft in front of me.i am told that the best time to catch them is when the river is clear. you should not have any problems as long as it is not crowded.
