    Has anyone been doing any good below the dam at Ozark? I have about had all the cats on Beaver, or should I say, I have about had all I want of trying to catch cats on Beaver. So I am about to start fishing the river again.
    How is the fall/winter fishing down there. Can I still bank fish below the dam and catch them like we did in the summer?
    thanks for any help anyone can provide.

    I just noticed the flow forcast for Ozark is 15,000-20,000 cps. Is that good for the catfishing down there? I fished it this summer anywhere between 35,000-55,000 cps. I am heading down there soon and just wanted to know.

    I think 12-25 is the best on river. It will depend which gates they have open and if you can get close to the current.

    Sam,
    Thanks for that advice. I will add some rope. Aren't you with Secret 7/teamcatfish? I got some Secret 7 about a month ago on Grand. I caught some fish on it over here on Beaver. It is great. I can't wait until the spring to use it alot.
