    Hi all,
    I am new to this forum and I am wondering if anyone fishes the Licking River from Alexandria to the ohio. I put in in wilder with a small boat and do not like to go out on the Ohio with it. How far down towards Foulmount can i go on the Licking and is one strech of the river better for fishing than others. Fish for what ever we can get to bite. Thanks

    Licking River

    You can go about a half mile past the Pond Creek Visalia Bridge. There is a riffle there. You can get through if you get out and pull it through. Better fishing starts where the river takes a sharp bend to the right, just pass the restaurant KnottyPine on the Bayou, up on Licking Pike. This is about 3 miles from I-275 bridge. From there all the way to the Visalia Bridge is good fishing. There is about 4 riffle areas in this area. Good bass, sauger, whitebass, catfish and drum fishing.

    Licking River in Campbell Co.

    There are largemouth, smallmouth and spots in the river. There are largemouth up to 5lbs or so. Most are from 10"-14". I have caught smallmouth up to 3.5 lbs. Spots up to 3lbs. Lots of white bass and drum. You can put in at Frederick's Landing or go out to Cline's on the River Bar on Licking Pike. They have a nice boat ramp, cost $5 to put in.
