Racine tailwaters

Discussion in 'Ohio River Fishing Reports' started by fishingcraig, Feb 12, 2009.

  1. Spent a weekend (Feb. 6-8) trying the races below the dam and was not good at all. Water was stained, it was hard to tell if there were baitfish in there, and no strikes or fish caught. One to two gates were open at various times closer to the locks, but current was not to bad. Tried jigs of every color, swimbaits, etc to no avail. Good news was the turbines seemd to be back up and running normally again, hopefully this will improve the fishing this spring and summer. :S
