    Good luck on Dow Lake. Had no catfish when I was there. There is no doult some big ones in it. It's mostly been built now for bass an mainly Trout I believe. Very very deep that is for sure.

    warning note: second hand info so could be totally wrong but a friend I fish with told me a fella caught a 39 lb flathead a week ago from there..On chickenliver hehe.

    I dunno if its true or not but it wouldn't surprise me. Last time I fished dow we caught a few smaller channels and one 8 or so lbr.

    Oh and for bait..he was using shrimp I was using gill heads.

    Best time to fish Dow is after a hard rain and it gets muddied up , grab a few tubs of liver and head for the upper end of the lake.
    Ive also never heard of anyone catching any Flatties there but that doesnt mean they arent in there.
