Guys I just found this place a few days ago and have spent a ton of time reading. The answer to my question is probably here already but just have not found it. First of all I live in Fayetteville and fish white river up here but the lake has been backed up into the river and fishing has not been good. Saturday I took my three boys down to Ozark. I hadnt been down there since I was a kid but we always had a blast then. There is nothing like a road trip to go fishing. I didnt take a boat because my little jon boat would scare me out there. We fished on the generator side (they were generating) and only caught three fish in 7 hours. (one small blue, one buffalo, one gar). We were using shad about 500 yards below the dam but just didnt get much action. Does anyone have any thoughts? Also is there a way to know when they are generating?
