    Yeah is the dam on a river or lake? lake dams and river dams can be totally different and definately take different strategies to fish them. If I knew which it was maybe I could help you out a little bit

    Deeper holes below low heads will usually harbor the bigger fish. Around riverscape they are among the boulders and up to the dam as well as the deeper water. During the day we do better in the boulders earlier in the day in the deeper pool. Would like to check that spot out myself sometime. Congrats on a nice fish!

    i found this old thread and i was curious if any southwest ohio guys have ever heard of any decent size flats coming from the dam? it always looked good and it would be a cool place to catch a nice Flattie. ive always caught channel cats, smallies and saugeye. I would think it would have to hold a least a few nice fish since its the deepest water in miles on that stretch of river and theres usually some structure stuck there.

    I think I heard of a small flathead being taken there but as you know, that far up the GMR there are hardly any flatties, best bet for those guys is to stay well below Dayton, just too many dams in the way to stop upstream migration.

    The whole upper GMR and Stillwater River offers some real nice channels , just fish about anywhere you can access and you should be able to find some channel cats.

    yeah, that dam is too far up, not worth the time in my opinion, your better off keeping it further south. i've tried it back in the day and never caught anything there.

    id like to see the flatties spread into the upper gmr and stillwater personally. they havent affected fishing for other species in the lower part of the river so i know they wouldnt cause any harm. i talked to a DNR officer personally and he said they shocked up multiple flats over 20 pounds the last time they shocked at the dam. maybe with a little relocation effort from the southern part of the river they could thrive. theyre too populated in the lower portion like others have said before.
