Was out yesterday got a huge sucker, small mouth that was abot 12 inches and some how snagged a big 20 inch walleye she was full of eggs so I put her back. I would have anyway because snagging walleye isnt right.however I wasn't ripping hooks through the water like I see some people doing.anyway.very windy and warm.good luck out there?

Just and FYI, one side of the damn will be closed to the public pretty much the entire summer due to cleanup work. ComEd is cleaning up the area of the old power plant and is closing off the area until the cleanup and restoration is complete.

My understanding about the west side of fordam is that they are trying to clean it up (get rid of the bums & trash) and they are going to use that fenced off parking lot and the area where you park to fish the w side and construct a river front park. I don't know how they plan on doing that with the tracks being right there especially if kids are going to be playing in the park. I guess they just put up signs a week or two ago and they've been issuing parking tickets if your caught parking there. The officer didn't say you weren't aloud to fish down there, he just said there was no parking aloud anymore. I think its a good idea that they are wanting to clean it up and do something with it because it really is an eye sore and it can be unsafe at times (depending who is down there).

Was @ the dam today. West side. Managed to get 1 keeper. Water is high, but the fishing has been good the last week. Been draging it on the bottom very slow. Seen more saugers then walleyes this year on the west side. Also as for the west side beening of limits, I haven't heard anything about it. Have seen many people fishing it lately. But i will say that it is very snaggey out their. Lots of line in the water. But the fish have been coming in and out lately. best time is early in the morning or night. So good luck to all bring plenty of hook's or jigs..... Big Smile

The West Side of Fordam is off limits now. They put up the signs and the ordinance number. I guess my father talked to an officer down there and he said they are tired of all the bums hanging out and partying down there.
