    matt, i,m a new member and also a fellow polak. and yes there is alot of giant flatheads and channels in it. try a casting net for live shad below the dam. sqeeze the shad till they bleed on a 1/0 hook. is the road open to the dam. i've been waiting and waiting and. we'll you get the idea.
    good luck

    ya last time i went the road to the dam was closed iv never seen it open before. Only fish need that camp ground area. Think i might head out there sometime soon and try my luck.
