    Anybody know anything about Yatesville? I was told that you could catch 5 - 10 pound channel cats up there all night long if you don't mind the work. Said it didn't have any big flatheads in it but was loaded with channels and "blues". I believe it's only been there for 17 years, completed in 1991. Anybody have any experience on it?

    Havent fished there in awhile but plan on it soon. There are soon many different places to fish and hopefully not as many weeds as dewey. I know that it is a good place to fish for other kinds of fish . It has to be a good place for catfish , heard some good storys . Alot of people go on rt. 32 (not sure the rt. #) the first turn off to yatesvile to catfish. Hopes this helps.
