I went out on Saturday to try to get some eyes. The bite was very slow, but the sheepshead wouldn't stop being caught. We ended up catching a nice sized sheepshead. If you want to go check out my video click here.

The fishing can far better on the falls side than the dam side. I've fished it a bunch of times years ago.

Judging by the giant red sign above their head that says "stay back 500 feet" I believe it is not allowed. The only way to fish that side is to take a boat up and stay back from the dam or get out and wade. It isn't any better than the dam side so I never understood why people go through the hassle.

Fished from 8pm till 10pm. Working up and down the river, and i must've snag onto a Huge Sturgeon down by the shelter. Used a 1/8 VMC moon-eye jig and maxi plastic. I saw 2 guys on their boat anchored on the Dam, is that allowed?

No one ever releases fish down there quite a shame. Many nice females always kept before the spawn.

Stopped down the other night and had to fish hard to get a couple eyes. Have heard of people doing well down here. Would be nice to finally have some good years of walleye fishing again on the river. As spring moves in I encourage people to take pictures and toss those big females back. Also only keep what you need to eat. Personally, I'm going to start only keeping 3 myself. This is a small body of water that gets fished hard. I realize people can do whatever is legal, but it would be nice to have years of countined quality walleye fishing.

Stopped down today, the crappie and walleye are starting to move back in near the new pavilion. Seems slip bobber rigs and jigs tipped with minnows are the best bet from what i've been told. anyone else have a tip?

I stopped down their a few days ago and saw one guy wading on the spillway side, didn't know if he caught anything. The high water levels are causing the mulch and new trees they planted to erode away.
