    Not me. Been close to the dam from the bank at the info site, but not on the water. Its deep, real deep at the dam. Maybe you could catch one of those monsterous cats that all lakes have at the Dam. You know the stories. "A diver was almost eatin" Just kidding. Give it a shot and let us know:wink:

    Dear Ranger,
    There are 4 channels leading into the dam. You have to catch it when the temperature is right, if you don't you are dealing with thermoclines and you have to figure out at what level they are at. If you are looking north from the dam, right hand side, 500-600 yds to the right there is a cliff which holds some pretty good fish. however you have to get over it and stay over it. To the left you will find catfish or gamefish. I don't think there is large catfish, however there may be some big ones running around the park. Around the point I think you will find small to mid grade catfish. If you go up approximately 2 miles to Tidwell Park boat ramp there are a lot of midgrade, especially on the left hand side around the rocks. You'll see them. It is a steep boat ramp and there is a lot of folks that use it.

    Hi folks, I went to Buford Dam today and put in behind The Dam Store. I did a large circle along the edge and around the front of the dam and back around to Tidwell Park, and did not even get a bite. Went directly back across the main channel, there's a cove which is locally known as "cocktail cove" which buttons up to Lake Lanier Golf Course. On the southern edge of that cove I hit pay dirt. Using frozen blueback herring I was able to obtain these 5 fish.
