This spot was pretty good for just me but I don’t think that it could be fished by anymore than three people at a time. Over all a nice spot with a large calm section on one side of the bridge, current/rapids under the bridge, and rapids in turns on the other side. The spot was an easy one minute walk away from parking. The parking was a little tricky because you have to park on the edge on someone’s field. *I was parked just off the road and as I got back to my car the man working the field asked me to pull in farther next time so they could still have access to their field.*

Awesome fishing when the back water is up, normal pool is decent for about half mile up creek then it's to shallow for a boat, the mouth where Holts Creek dumps into the Ohio river is the best spot, tons of underwater structure, average 12-15 feet depth with a .5 to 2 mph current. Plenty of Hybrid Bass, Flathead Cat, Bluecats, brim, perch all around good spot. Easy access from bank and boat.
