Is The dam still good to fish in? I have only been there once since early 2003. I caught my first flathead there at 6 pounds and first channel at 2 pounds. I have fished upriver in the winter on a small dock and caught 5 nice sized channel cats in an hour but the guy seems to forget who we are(hasnt seen us for about 3 years or so). anyways, is pike island dam still good and when should i get there to avoid the crowd? What bait should i use?
