BB,
I live fairly close to it and drive over it several times a week. I'll bump this thread back up when the ice thaws. Though I think a couple of weeks might be a bit optimistic.

I'll update you later today after i drive over it. As of a few days ago, it was water on top of the ice, so it's starting to thaw. I have no idea how thick the ice was at it's peek, but I do know that it usually busts up pretty fast as the water levels flutuate with dam releases.
I imagine evrybody and his brother will be down below the dam for the next several days as they wait for their favorite lake to thaw.

Sorry, Dude. She's still iced up and fairly thick form what I can tell. Ice as far North as you can see from the dam and raging chocolate with white water below it. It's gonna be a while, still.
Don't shoot the messenger!

Hopefully with these 60+ degree days and nights that stay above freezing it will be good to go by next weekend.

gettin' there

Well, well, well. Things are looking up for you, my man. O'Shannesy is 50% open above the dam. I'm sure it'll only be a matter of hours/days before it is completely ice free, but a dude could definately boat around up there. Didn't make it up to the boat launch, more on that tomorrow. Griggs and above seem to be the best bet if you're looking for Scioto fishies. Just watched a guy launch at Griggs while I was eating lunch in the car. He must've forgot to put his plug in because he had her all set in and then went racing back to the car and pulled her back out. HeHeHe. He finally got it together as he "smoked" off into the distance....Aren't boat ramps fun in the Spring?

I got the "forgot the plug" thing over with my first time out with my boat. I could understand though, after this winter........I'd be so excited to be launching the boat that I'd forget a few things too.

When do they start putting the docks in? I can't remeber, is there something to tie up to while parking your truck at O'Sh.? I would be launching by myself and sometimes that's tough to do without a place to tie up to.

Well, I can't wait for the report. Hopefully this time on Monday I'll be steaming up river:) :cool: :) :cool:
