I've never been to BD,heard good things about it. I got a 16ft Crestliner that's itchin to get on top of some decent cats. I need directions from the Gurnee Ill area or at the very least the # to a baitshop in the area. Its been a struggle for me this season for the kitties. I sure could use a lil help fellas!!!!

Is there any where on the lake as far as shore fishing where you can get decent cats? Been having okay days under the damn but the numbers aren't there like I want them to be.... Any info is greatly appreciated.

Definitely have seen better times out here. The quality of fish is still here, but very hard to find. Once you find them though you will catch some dandies

If the Mexican had more than 10, you should have called the warden.

I know this isn't the river link at all, but I thought I'd still share this with you. Started around 10 last night by the bridge below thedamn and got this 21 inch 2 1/2 cat within the first five mintues. Fished till 12 or so, caught numerous 6-7" cats and bullheads, left due to rain. Went home, cleaned him up, and came back out after showers, around 145. Stayed till 330, action was hot, cats and b ullheads up the arse, and managed to keep these two. Saw a Mexican gentleman, with a bucket full of 6-8" cats. Really people? C'mon let those go!

My theory is that since an enormous amount of big catfish died, there is that much more forage in the lake for the gamefish. Which is why its hard to get them to bite. I have had zero luck on gamefish this year on beaver dam but have caught some nice pannies earlier in the spring/summer. Anybody else think this too?

There is indeed fish in Beaver Dam Lake. Are they as prevalent as in past year or 2 , no. However they are there and can be caught. I have caught cat, walleye and northern this summer. They are not in the "usual" places but are there. There is plenty of short walleye and some nice northern out there. I have not gotten many panfish but then again I do not fish a lot for them. The typical baits have also not been as successful. It is afterall called fishing, not catching. I have been able to catch enough to eat plenty of fish and get some in the freezer. Work at it and it will reward you. Remember any day on the water fishing is a good day, the catching is a bonus.

The water clarity is pretty good for this time of year. Very clean except by the landing I used.

Another fine trip to BD. Fished the hotbed called the narrows. Again, nobody fishing it. I did see one other fisherman though. 3 cats, 1 crappie and 1 Sunfish. 6 hours, fished maybe multiple areas. Had maybe two other bites. Cats in the merinade right now, seeing the smoke tomorrow.
