    I've fished this spot going on 11 yrs. now. The species I have caught are as follows....Flathead, Blues, Channels, Stripers, Walleye, Sandies, Carp, Buffalo, Long nose gar, and Spoonbill. Just a word of warning on the spoonbill though, If u read the fishing regs, no snagging allowed from I-44 River bridge upstream to keystone dam. If u accidently snag a spoonbill, they must be released immediately. To date the largest flathead I have taken there was 30 lbs. Largest Blue was 35 lbs. Largest Channel was 12 lbs, and largest Striper was 17 lbs. all these fish were caught off the east side fishing pier with a 12 foot ugly stik and garcia 7000 w/ 17lb. green biggame mono. Best time to fish is when Keystone is generating at least 5000cfs but ideally if river is running at least 15000cfs. Fishing picks up around middle of March thru July and then again end of Sept. thru Nov. Just remember that the river is at the mercy of Keystones release and generation schedules so plan your excursions accordingly. Also between 2:eek:o-4:00 am is when I took the big flathead and Blue. Hopes this helps u and good luck with your fishing

    probably 70 percent of the time there are tons of shad there. make sure that you increase the rope length on your net because you'll be throwing from a walkway that is 10-15 ft. above the water.
