First time fishing Jefferson and the Crawfish this morning. Fished Riverfront Park. Started slow but got better. I gotta ask though, what in blazes is wrong with your Carp?! Every one I caught today, without exception, went absolutely ballistic on me. I've been fishing Carp for 8 years now, and I'm used to them fighting well. Especially so this time of year just after spawn. But this was ridiculous. Like there was some chemical leak or something in the water acting as a stimulant. I've never seen the like.Crazy crackhead fish! Made it extra fun, but got annoying after a time cause the darn things would NEVER sit still. Inexhaustible balls of energy.

Anyhow, no bites before dawn but did pick up 3 decent sized Channel Cats and a Drum. Soon as some light was on the water the carp started biting. Ended up with 20 banked. Largest at 11.3 LB. 133.4 LB total. Not a bad morning. Fished 4:00 to maybe 10:30. Bit well on boilies/pack bait real early in the morning, then seemed to favor particles (Corn/Hominy) more as the day progressed.

I have never been here, how crowded does it get on holiday weekends and where is there a good place to park?


Thanks in advance

I've been fishing other spots on the craw and catching white bass that are milking so  it's a weird year wasnt really a walleye run they moved way earlier than people thought kept saying wait a week or two but it was over early I'm guessing its gonna be like that for whitebass also if u wait 2 or 3 weeks ur gonna miss it

I won’t say exactly what o used but I used a plastic that looked like a minnow, glow and chartreuse on the smallest jig I could find down from the dam in the calmer water. 2 weeks ago got like 25 WB

Was out this evening for 2 hours, didnt fish right by dam, but not far away, had a very good night with mix of cats, crappie, white bass, and walleye.  I agree that big run of white bass is probably about 2-3 weeks away, there have been years when right now is prime, definitely behind on water temps this year.  All that said I was very pleased with size and numbers of fish I caught tonight, definitely doing something different than what most guys are doing right now, all I care to say is there is an area where lots of bait is schooled up, lots of fish are taking advantage of the buffet.

Water temperature isn't warm enough yet for White bass run.  It will be slow for another couple weeks.  Once it warms up enough, they will start running and bite will be on.

Had to see for myself....so today, May 5th, I drove the 35 miles to Jefferson from my house. Weather was great so I figured....why not. Left the boat home, fished from shore. There were about 4 people fishing just off the road south of the dam. I was using a white twister tail with a sinker about 18" above it. The very first cast I had a hit...landed a 12" white bass. I thought oboy, there here. I fished for an hour with NO further results. 1 white bass, that's it !! I saw NO other WB caught by any of the other fishermen. With more crappy weather coming, the future does NOT look good for WB fishing on the Rock in Jefferson.

Was going for walleye but only caught a black buffalo, which ate a jig of all things. And lost my what would of been PB 20lbs 40” carp right at the dam after an hour long fight.
