    Last time I was over the dam at Rough (about 2 weeks ago) It was closed to all fishing. The campground was open, but they're working on the spillway and no fishing is allowed. They might have finished it though and I didn't hear about it.

    i believe the dam will be closed for the rest of the year and longer. they are doing some major renovations to it right now. they just got through raising the dam about 8 feet so they are not going to drop the lake as much in the winter. they also extending the apron 100 and some odd feet and fixing other things to make it more attactive. also, they are putting in a boat ramp at the campgrounds there. i believe when it is done it will resemble nolin lakes tailwaters somewhat.
