    Just checked both the flow rate (21) and the water height (16 or 18?) below the dam. Within the next 2 days or so, if we don't get more water or much, it should be fishable. That is if ya can stand the cold!!!

    I'll probably hit it later next week as it's still a bit cold and I'd rather be ice fishing. I was supposed to go yesterday, but after some important things that needed done, it was too late to head all the way there. Post and let me know how ya do!!

    Well, I got called back to work today or I'd head down. The nice weather would make for a sweet day. I imagine in 2-3 days, it'll be so high you can't think of fishing it....:(

    yea, judging from the weather report i'd say yea...my buddy fished pike island sunday morning..talked to a regular there...another regular caught six walleye, but fished from early a.m. till around 6 a.m...charlie caught 2 at around 6 a.m., then they shut down. no sauger, i wonder what is up. haven't heard of any kind of spills that might effect the bite, since the coppers plant in follansbee last summer and that was trivial...good your back to work....be good/good fish'n.

    As soon as the water is down enough to fish, and there is still ice, albeit unsafe......(too unstable to ice fish!!),I'll be there on the weekends!
