    I lived in there for several years the best place I seen was above the dam on the concrete slabs .The north side seemed to produce more than any other we fished the bends casting out 50 feet or so.The hot water ditch gave up some real nice flatties in the winter not to mention the causeway bridge just south of the hot water ditch .Hope this helps friend....Slimy
