It looks like the only way of entering the east side of the dam is from the bridge they did put up no trespassing signs on the fence on the east side ( by the sports factory)

Do you know why it was locked and if it will be reopened.Did they put up no trespassing signs? Can you walk from the west side across the pedestrian bridge or walk from Morgan St.

Thanks again.

SW, on February 19, on a bicycling Facebook page I follow, one of my fellow cyclists posted "PSA - The pedestrian gate on the east side of the Fordem Dam is now chained and locked. This is the gate between the parking area and spillway by UWSF."

Fished near the dam again for about 45 mins throwing a 3" chartreuse twister with a glow 1/4oz jighead. Caught a 14" smallie, very healthy fish. And a 16 1/2" walleye. Walleye was milking. Also, lost a better walleye. All fish came right at dark.


When I went to leave I set down my medium sized camouflage tackle box right on side of road where you park. It's a Plano zip up bag with 2 clear plastic boxes in it. Not much for tackle in it but it is very sentimental as it was a birthday gift. I was parked right in front of a white sedan car and left before them. If you happened to have found it please message me, I will gladly give a reward for it. Thank you

Hit the creek for an hour, caught a few smallmouth throwing a 3" twister on a 1/4oz jig head. People were fishing the mouth so I didn't get to give it a shot there. Smallest was 12" biggest was 16 1/2". Nice to get out even if only for an hour. Lost something bigger that snapped my line, believe it was a Pike. Water in the creek was perfect. There was about 4 people on the east side of dam, went and talked to them. They were catching a lot of carp just on worms. Going to try again Sunday hopefully.

Fished there for about an hour yesterday. The water has gone down some, but still high. Lots of people fishing, not so much catching. I got skunked but what a nice day to try.

I was fishing the creek and could see the east side from there. Not one person fishing so it may be closed off right now. I guess I will have to drive down there and check it out soon.

Not personally but I’ve heard there’s been shoulder to shoulder fishing going on there.
