I floated the LMR today and had a great time. Gotta get back to teaching the kids tomorrow so tonight officialy ends my summer. Some folks have been inquiring about the rivers and kayaks so I thought it would be fun to document my float. I put in at Trebein Road and floated down to Washington Mill Road. It took me roughly seven hours. There are a few more downed trees than normal since last week's storm in the Beavercreek area, especially between Trebein and 35. At one piont today it started pouring, man I got soaked, but managed to hide under a big tree for awhile. I met a fellow OGF member, a really nice guy, we fished together for awhile and eventually parted ways. (By the way, I forget your username, send me a PM) A lot of great cover for Bass in the Trebein to Indian Ripple Road stretch. The river is very narrow with a lot of great holes to fish. Once you pass The Narrows (Indian Riffle) this river gets wider and there is much less structure to fish, even though still good places to fish. The river is really shallow, did some walking today for sure, but all in all, it wasn't too bad. The bad part is once you pass The Narrows, the recreational canoe traffic picks up. Not too bad today, but enough to annoy. Game warden was "hiding" close to Washington Mill. He was standing in the brush, about scared the pants off me, I guess he was looking for cabrewers. Some nice wildlife out there, saw some deer, a lot of turtles, and even a couple snakes. Overall, I only caught 7 fish, all smallies and one largemouth. However, all but one were 12 inches or bigger. The largemouth was 14 inches. Picture linked below. If you haven't enjoyed the rivers around here, you need to do so. We are lucky to have such good fishing rivers in our area. There is nothing better than a peaceful float down the river. Sorry to hog up so much space, but just wanted to share my day. Looking forward to the tourney!
