    There is a pull-off on 257 just south of the zoo. Its right near the Franklin/Deleware border. Its nice to shorefish or even better to wade. Jigs and small crankbaits seem to pull in everything that swims ;)

    Drove up to Bellpoint yesterday didn't look too bad. (no fishing gear) never was a boy scout!
    Went below Oshay tonight caught a few but man the Scioto has been tough fishing over the past week. Not sure what's going on but it's been pretty slow. Water is still pretty murky never takes this long to clear up. Anyone know if they are dredging or doing any work in the resevoir?
    Gadabout, maybe try Alum for awhile they seem to be doing better that way and water, according to posts is much clearer.
