The whole river is fish able because it's shallow enough to go though most of it. If you are pointing towards water that could hold fish such as smallmouth, trout, catfish, suckers, pike, or carp. You can always try local parks that sit right next to the river. Estabrook, Kletch, North Avenue dam(on north avenue st.). There are many spots where many fish would lay in, but choosing the correct presentation is up to you. Otherwise I would suggest to just wade and walk the entire river. cover more ground and find the holes that alot of fish lay in. Hope this helped.

Does anyone know if it would be a decent spot to try bowfishing near the dam?

Repair the damn. It used to be a great place to fish when the gates where closed.

No luck with steelies yet. With the warm weather they should be active very soon.

St Croix? I myself like to start with premium grade bamboo from the highlands of Ethiopia, I strip it down and wax it with the tar of the Cambodian wabba wabba tree for flexibility and get 7.865lb super secret mono/braid/floro line out the back of a little store in chinatown in San Fransisco. I bait it with a black angus grass-fed highland cattle organic hot dog and JUST SLAY monster TROUT......

Oh wait, this is a thread about Estabrook Park?..... yeah, any steelhead in there yet?

Ugly sticks are great for children and those who are not serious fisherman. I have yet to use a better rod than my USA made st. croix rods(i don't own a triumph or triumph x. Anything less and i feel like my catch rates drop.

At the end of the day everyone has their own opinion. If you like a Chevy, buy a Chevy. But don't discredit a ford just because you don't like it.
