    Hey Aaron I got 2 yesterday at Newburg dam off the end of the wall, saw one other get caught. This was after 11 am. They were chasing little minnows like crazy but wouldn't hit jigs or Sabiki flies. Another guy there was headed to Spotsville dam he said they were runnin there.

    Aaron there was a post on here a days or so ago stating that they were catching them below Barkley, up close to the dam. Maybe you can locate the post. He stated a man and boy caught a five gal bucket in a few minutes. Key word was up close to dam.

    you can get right next to the dam and touch it on both sides right now. it sucks kinda on the gate side of the dam for the steep long rock walls they have. ive done really well from the bank. but thats the only way i have fished it so far. i went twice and got enough bait to prolly last me till spring.
