    I've heard they are in there, it just takes a lot of patience because they aren't incredibly populous there, but hopefully what I'm hearing is just rumors and some other members can answer this for you.

    Yeah they are in there. I've only caught 3 or 4 from there but they are in it.

    They're in there, I caught a few a couple of weeks ago that were kinda small but good for the frying pan. I was fishing in a cove over by the beach. I caught them on nightcrawler. I heard a good place was down the hill from the observation tower by the dam. I was down there today to check it out but I didn't do any fishing. It looks like someone has been down there fishing with cut bait.
