    Has anyone ever fished the Yough Dam for catfish? I've fished in the past for Walleyes exclusively. Always heard stories of big cats .

    i was there one time with my cousin a while back. we had never been there and found a parking lot with a boat ramp. there was what looked like a canal on the side of the lot that people were fishing and they were catching carp, huge suckers 17-24 inches long, and nice channel cats up to 8 pounds. don't remember exactly where it was now as that was the only time i was there and it was a long time ago. honestly i would love to get some of those suckers for bait.

    I also have heard of big cats there. One local guy told me of big yellow cats. I think he was probably meaning flatheads. I also heard people say they think there are Blues in there, but it may be big channels.
