Anyone around Evansville, IN?

Hi gents,

 

we have a work location in Evansville, IN and I’ll be traveling there more. Anyone from the area that can give some direction on places to try?  Obviously I won’t have my boat and will have to fly with whatever I bring.  I’m game for anything.

 

thanks

rick

A couple hours north of there, but have friends in the area. Bluegrass F&W area is worth looking into just NE of the city. Lots of old strip mine pits to investigate, also. Then there is the Ohio R, but that stretch isn’t great.

thanks!

 

I grew up on the Mon south of Pittsburgh so the big rivers are familiar. And this stretch looks… meh. Glad I wasn’t too wrong there. I’m not opposed to a forked stick and some worms on the bottom for cats and carp but that’s what this stretch looks like (I’m here now). 
 

I’ll do some research on Bluegrass.

Coincidentally, we flew right over it today and it was right outside my window. I managed to get a good look from not very high up which was great. Looks quite fishable and the access is decent enough for shore fishing. I’ll definitely give it a go next trip.
