Went out there this weekend. Fishing is awesome! Be sure to go to the Lake Gaston/tailrace side of the dam. Only downside is that alot of people can be down there at any one time. And try to go when the turbines aren't running. A whole slew of channel cats in the 2-3 pound range were being caught, along with a few stripers. Fish were hitting the surface feeding non-stop the whole time I was out there. Best results were with slip bobbers and stink bait. Although I did catch one on the bottom with chicken liver...but I lost about 10 rigs to the bottom, must be alot of snags down there.
