    You would have to be fishing right on top of these guy's before they would consider that horning in...:wink:...they caught all these on a two mile stretch of the river.......they are going back this weekend so I'm sure I'll get a report next week .....they put on the water just below the foot bridge [or the swinging bridge which ever you want to call it] just below the dam.....they stopped by Ma Ma Lavish's and Hinkel's to get their gold fish but said they couldn't get a bite on the goldie's .they caught all thier fish on blue gill's....

    I was thinking of going there this weekend.I have only been there 1 time befor in april of this year.Did not catch anything withwiskers (paddle fish stripers,carp,wall-i,great bait fish)but no cats.Is there other places to fish from shore,and if so how and where. I fished on the east bank right by the dam last time.Also how is the fishing at night on the lake side by the dam.Any information would be great. Thank you

    Mike, My buddies that fish below the dam off the bank go below the foot bridge on the west side at night ....the river is bank full ..they are hoping it comes down a little..
