Anybody mind sharing information on public access points to SW Ohio creeks/streams/rivers ? Im actually doing research more for some light recreational gold panning than anything else , so I wont fish out your fishin hole , and you can PM me any information you may have if you want. I live so far from that area I just though it couldnt hurt to ask for some info. Thanks

That would be interesting if you actually found some gold!

There's gold in them hills! Arrrrrgh! I heard a good story about some buried treasure from a Hamilton County park guide last week. Let me know if you find a large silver plaque with some ancient symbols on it and we can go 50/50 on the loot! :)

There is gold in those creeks/rivers , especially in the southwest part of the state. The biggest hurdle is that the state "claims" adjacent landowners also own the riverbed ( even though federal statute says differently ) , so access is very limited and living out of the area makes road trips just to scout around looking for public access more expensive than its worth. So the only affordable alternative is to keep asking for information from those who live in the area. Any tips you guys can share is very appreciated :)

And to think this whole time I've been going after "bronze" when I could be going after gold...

I would just google canoe access points on either the LMR or GMR. There's a bunch of them.

You would be suprised ,just by asking landowners access to the river, how often they will say yes if you are polite and tell them that you will be respectful and leave no trash behind. I guess a fella could take a fishing pole and the stuff you need to collect gold to your spot and do some fishing and keep the gold findings to yourself. Gold makes people do strange things. But make sure if you fish at all you have a license. I don't think you need one to look for gold. I would love to take my kids down to look for some. Even if they just pound a pebble of gold, they would be thrilled. Going to look into it. Good luck! I am now a gold prospector!!!:)

There was a gold mine at East Fork lake when it was dammed up. Any of those creeks would probably have gold in 'em. I don't know what the rules are for a State park, tho'...
