Report Mad River In OHIO

Me and pops got the fly rods out yesterday and hit bout 5 miles of the Mad River in north Centeral Ohio. Didn't catch a darn thing. got to see a good amount of fish. The water so low they all in the small DEEPer pools anything over 2.5-3 foot had fish in it. They just to spooked to eat anything I had in my box.BUT, we both spent time with each other and that worth more than any fish.


Thanks for the report! It probably wil take the fish a couple of days to get used to the depth... Does the depth change over time?

I never tried fly fishing before... but i've seen other guys do it.
