    i fish for flatheads at the spillway. i go about half way up the concrete wall and drop my bait down about 2 feet from the wall. i had to make a dip net that i could lower down the wall to get thim out. the dam at redrock is good place for flatheads to. i just moved to centerville ia this spring im still trying to figer out the rivers here.
