Ohio River Region Fishing Report – August 30th, 2013
Serpintine Wall, Downtown Cincinnati (Hamilton County) – Anglers are having success catching blue cats in the morning hours. Try using chicken breast.
Greenup Dam – Hybrid striped bass and white bass should be moving this time of year. For hybrid striped bass, try fishing cut baits and live baits off the bottom. For white bass, try using topwater lures as well as skipjack, chubs, shiners, and cut bait. Early mornings will probably produce the most catches.
Hannibal Lock and Dam Tailwater – Hybrid striped bass in the five-to seven-pound range have been caught in good numbers in the past. The majority of the fish are usually caught on skipjack or shad. Try casting out into the tailwater section and let your bait drift, or place it under an agitator and retrieve in short jerks. Fishing off one of the platforms or along the walkway near the dam are your best bets. Catfish can still be caught with cut bait and skipjack. Although night fishing yields the best results, the recent cooler temperatures may work to your advantage.
New Richmond to Meldahl Dam (Clermont County) – Catfishing is still heating up along the Ohio River. Water levels are still slightly low in some areas but anglers are reporting good catches on raw or seasoned chicken breast.
