I almost bought a camp (actally a 3 bedroom house) on route 103 (I think that is the route number that runs along the Sciota River) right across the train tracks. A distant cousin died and I was second on the list to buy it from his widow. Sadly the first one bought it. I have many fond memories of fishing on the Sciota River as a kid, many!
Heck, small world sometimes jj. Yep, I'm about 20 miles north of Porstmouth, and that's route 104 that runs along side of the Scioto River and State route 23 all the way to Columbus and beyond.
And yep, lot of good fishing in the Scioto river and ALOT of good arrowhead hunting as well. I try to hit the bottoms along side of the river at least a few times a year (looking for arrowheads). Several years ago even done/helped with some farming in the river bottoms. Have you ever been down along Earl Thomas Conley park? (Riverside park. I think they actually call it.)
