    Jerry, that pic is of the Badin dam from Falls lake. The Badin spillway is redirected around the backside of that powerhouse. If you ever go to the lower dam flood gates on Badin and look it's a long way down. Sadly that is currently the only yadkin dam with an air infusion system on it, to put oxygen in the water.

    you know that aint a bad idea. I have been to Badin to many times to count now but I havnt looked around outside the lake much. I need to pick a good windy day that fishing is crapy and look around. I havnt seen much of lake, that whole section behind golf course I have been to but once. never looked behind lower dam.
