    Has anyone been doing any good on the tail race. I was thinking about drifting and focusing in on stump piles and such. I have a pond full of bream and some frozen herring.

    There was a 95# Blue Catfish caught out of there a couple of weeks ago; not sure exactly where. I haven't heard too many reports lately, but the catfishing should be good.

    Thanks Tommy, I need to put some meat in the freezer. I am out of work right now because of school so I need to feed the family. I will let you know how I do.

    Clint, there is a sign on the right bank just below the dam, and just above a water intake. Entry above the railroad trestle is also restricted at night; there is a sign, I think, on the railroad trestle.
