Meigs County - Fishing for hybrid striped bass is good at the tailwaters of the Belleville and Racine Dams. Use little jig-heads for best results.

Scioto County - The fishing at Greenup Dam has been exceptional lately. Lots of hybrid striped bass up to 11 pounds are being caught on live or cut baits. Anglers are using cast nets to catch 7 to 9-inch shad, which they are using whole for bait. Using a Carolina rig with a 1 to 2-ounce lead sinker and a 2-foot line leader just past the sinker, they are casting out from the concrete wall, as far out as possible. Cut bait of skipjack herring pieces fished on the bottom and just letting it sit there is also a good method for catching the "wipers." A few sauger can be caught on river shiners by using a heavy sinker and dropping them straight down from the concrete wall. To catch the shiners for bait, use cast nets or dip nets. Both the upper and lower platforms at Greenup Dam are fishable right now as the result of good water conditions. Near Portsmouth at the mouth of the Little Scioto River, hybrid striped bass are being caught on chicken liver and night crawlers. Shad are also good bait for hybrids at this location. Anglers are catching the shad with cast nets, cutting them into pieces, and fishing the pieces on the bottom.

Activity: Hybrid striped bass fishing is good near Marietta, with most fish being caught from a boat. Most ``Hybrids'' are running 16 to 20 inches and are being caught on white ?-ounce twister jigs.

Scioto County -- Water temperature is 77 degrees. The river is in good shape at normal pool or slightly below and clarity is good. Fishing for hybrid striped bass at Greenup Dam has slowed. Persistent anglers are catching hybrid stripers first thing in the morning and around 8:30 p.m. or just before dark. Use white rattlesnakes with heavy casting bobbers to get out into the current or white or silver flukes with casting bobbers and cast way out.

OHIO RIVER

Belmont, Scioto, and Washington counties - Fishing has been slow in the Ohio River, but catfish, freshwater drum (sheepshead), gar, and a few hybrid striped bass and white bass have been observed. Catfish anglers are catching channel catfish and some flathead catfish on chicken liver, and night crawlers fished tight-line on the bottom. Hybrid striped bass have also been caught using cut and whole skipjack and chicken livers.
