    I fish here quite a bit but I still havent figured out what I'm doing wrong because I see people go there and catch really nice sized catfish but yet the only thing I have caught there is a 2 pound channel so i'm looking for some tips...please help me.

    you fish it from the boat or from the bank? i have caught a lot of fish up that way but most of my fishing is done on the up river side of the dam

    I fish from the bank...but I dont know what side to fish really...I've fished from both sides but only caught that one catfish on the low side of the dam...do you fish from boat or bank?

    Do you think the upside of the dam is better than the low side???
