    Can you fish from bank at the bottoms?If so,can you use a cast net to catch bait from shore?I'm going with my father tomorrow,never been before.I don't think I'm taking my boat,so I need any info about the areas bank.Thanks.

    Yes and Yes… Down by the ramp is a good spot to catch shad, just work your way down both sides of the dike… then below the handicap fishing platform is good for bait. Plus there’s the dikes all the way down to the Mississippi to catch bait and fish off of, just more walking there… AWESOME area, wish you and your dad a great day there Michael.

    Thanks for the info.I didn't know there was that much down there.Now,it looks like I might take my boat,but that's up in the air.Sounds like I don't need it,anyway.

    Columbia Bottoms is 3 miles past Chain of Rocks bridge on Riverview Drive.It's about 30-45 minutes from Arnold.Very nice area,good ramp,easy access.
