I was wondering if anybody fishes down there often? Im planning on heading out there this Saturday, instead of my normal trip to Carlyle. Ive fished the Mississippi many times, but never this location. Anyone have any good spots along the dam area, that they recommend? I went out to Alton this past Saturday around 6pm to check it out, and make sure I knew where it was. I noticed the entrance gate is only open from 9am-5pm, this is the right spot to enter the dam area right?
