OHIO RIVER fishing report

New Richmond to Meldahl (Clermont County) — Water levels are up, around 28 feet, strong current but water clarity is decent. The water temperature is about 75 degrees. Catfishing is best at night. Try cut bait, chicken livers, dead shiners and shrimp. Sauger are being caught in the late afternoon and evening. Anglers are reporting success on crank baits, Rapala Shadrap or Xrap.
Riverbend to Downtown Cincinnati (Hamilton County) — Water is high and running fast. Conditions are making fishing slow. Anglers are catching a few Channel catfish on cut shad and chicken livers.
Water levels in the river continue to fluctuate daily due to rainfall events. Anglers have been catching catfish in some areas of the river using cut baits as well as live bait including baitfish, crayfish and worms, but angling pressure has been light.Fishing forum
