View Full Version : Anyone having luck at OH Dam?

I was just wondering if anyone has been having luck below OH Dam recently? If so, whats been working for you? I went this morning and got absolutely skunked. I didn't even get a nibble. I checked the TVA website before I headed out and felt the release data looked good and they had 2 or more generators going. So I was pretty surprised the fish were inactive. I even walked up to the gens to see if I could entice some saugers to bite, but no luck there either. I tried everything jig I had; twister tails, mini flukes, sliders. Tried white, chart., orange, and white/chart.

I went last Saturday for a few hours. Caught a few short spots and two others that pushed 4 lbs each. Only problem was the big ones were drum. Oh well, they fight too. Spots were caught on suspending cranks baits, drum on white grubs.

We went this past Monday and they were running 2 generators when we got there but before long they were running all generators fully. Almost impossible to sauger fish in that current. Caught 0 sauger and 1 drum. Went from the dam all the way to the mouth of the Stones with no luck. Water temp at the mouth of the Stones was 36 degrees. I think the water temp needs to warm a little.

Thats a bit chilly. I fished below Nashville Friday with no luck. Mainly checking out some bait and how they moved in the water as to whether I wanted them in the box or not.
