    Haven't fished it this year. I have only ever fished it for walleye and pike. Do you catfish there? I always wanted to try catfishing there.

    Were you guys up in Maryland in the shallows or in deeper water?

    Good thread. The pa fish commission has been stocking channels in there for years. There ought to be some huge channels but as far as flatheads I don't know but it would be a perfect place fpr them. Lots of baitfish, Deep and shallow structure and fairly consistent water temps. Anyone hear of any Flats in there?

    Never heard of any flats in there. I usually fish around jockey hollow.
    There has to be some big channels hanging around those bridge pillars.

    I have caught Channels in the Yough Dam. Many by accident on jigging spoons. I have targeted them thought with chubs and chicken livers. We have got some real nice channels I don't think there is any flats in there though, It would be an excellent lake for flatheads.
