    For years Linda my pawpaw has called the gates at the hydro plant the bear traps cause he said when they arent letting water out they look like bear traps and they do haha I fish there alot on the boat ramp at George Rogers Clark Park in Indiana and when my buddies go out in the boat im sure to go I hope that helps a little bit

    the bear traps ai apparently a old school phrase . i can remeber my grand parents had these little shacks for camping rite across the river from them thats what they always called them also. i sometimes confuse the younger guys too, by referring to them as the bear traps but i really never questioned why they were called that now i know thanks...

    Alot of the old shacks are still there and people still use them they remind me of something youd see on a horror movie with a bunch or weird people in them ha ha but still not alot of action as far as the big cats been a few more than last month so im hopeing it will change
