8racing3,

If I were you I'd move just a little farther south a couple miles if you must fish in the area you're talking about. Try just below the Greenlawn Dam but get out while there's still daylight, rough area. At times, smallmouth, white bass, saugeye, and most other things that swim can be caught there. You'll have to wade to fish it properly but position yourself just below the roller dam and cast upstream. Hope you're catch and release, not the most prestine waters.

The area you describe is mostly very shallow and silted in.

You could also move upstream and fish below the roller dam on the Scioto just upstream of the confluence with the Olentangy.

Good luck,

Rick

Unless it pours all day tomorrow that roller dam will be bone dry. During low water levels the water plant on 33 takes the entire flow of the Scioto from an intake pipe just north of the damn. The reasult is a sluggish pool from the "water works" roller dam down to Greenlawn...Only flowing water comes from the Olentangy...and it's only at a trickle at best...

thank you for all the replies. i think by what i am reading that the greenlawn dam is the best place to try.

or if there is any lakes near by that we might fish from shore we could try.

thanks alot
