    I think it is very difficult to catfish. If they are running current it is hard to fish, and bottom fishing to me is out due to rocks. You can catch bait easy below the dam, and I would fish a three way rig in the boils with cut bait for cats, There are also stripers below the dam that are fun to fish for. There used to b a small bait shop below the dam at the campground that had lots of pic's of fish people had caught.

    I was at Douglas Dam on Tues and it was VERY low. I could see rocks all over the place even when the water was on. People fishing and not much was being caught.
