In one of my fruitless trips to BDL this year - I talked to a local who claimed he saw "thousands" of dead fish along the shore after ice-out. It may not have been a "total" winter kill - but I do believe at least a moderate if not a major kill-off occurred. The bites and hits just aren't coming as they have in recent years.

Hit the narrows on Sunday morning. I was the only boat within sight for a couple of hours. One bite, an 11 inch walleye. Used red worms, crawlers and hellgrammites. I guess the elusive 14 inch perch passed me by.

Wind came up and I tucked in behind some islands and had 4 cats. The two smallest went home to get smoked. They were awesome.

Maybe not a total freeze out, but I believe damage was done.

Baits Motel Wow, we are still hearing visitors to the area asking about that "Total Freeze Kill," that happened to Beaver Dam Lake this winter. ???? Whoever started this nonsense? Beaver Dam Lake DID NOT suffer a total freeze kill this winter.

Lots of catfish being caught, not as BIG as last year for the most part anyway, If anything suffered, it was some of the BIG cats. That, however, comes as good news to many. There are a lot of Northerns being caught right now. The gills were off a bit this summer, but the perch being found in the Narrows can be HUGE. We see a lot of pics here. 14 1/2 inch perch were caught yesterday on hellgrammites by drifting the Narrows. Most of the shore fishing done off of the land owners piers isn't mentioned much on Lake Link, and for good reason. Thunder Bugs (Rock Flies) and hellgrammites get sold our regularly. Leeches are still the ticket for walleyes here, with night crawlers a close 2nd choice. For Cats, Sonny's Blood Stink Bait is still number 1. The crappies are always present here on Beaver Dam Lake, and now that the bite is slowing on Fox Lake, you might want to try it here. Thanks all. Christopher and Carol and the other Carol, and the girls.

I agree that is a cat, here is a pic of a bowfin aka dogfish and a pic of a cat I am pretty sure there is a clear difference between the two. Unless I have been eating dog fish for the last fifteen years?

Catnround, I fished the river both Saturday & Sunday morning below the dam. You can catch all the bullheads & cats you want if you are just looking to catch fish. You will also catch some other fish but they are a tougher bite right now.
