Golconda and the Smithland Pool

Over the weekend we connected with Dr. Chuck Litecky from SIU who offered use of his boat and guide services along the Ohio River. We explored the area around the Smithland Pool, which is one of the area’s most beautiful spots along the Ohio. Some history about the Smithland Pool- it was created with the completion of the Smithland Dam which is located approximately l6 miles South of Golconda, IL. It runs from the Smithland Dam to the J T Meyers Dam near Uniontown, KY. The pool is 72 miles long and contains over 27000 acres of the beautiful Ohio Rivers waters. It’s a rich area for fish and not short  on Asian Carp.
