I've been fishing here for almost 30 years, (100% Facts) there are some record Shattering size fish here! I was almost pulled over the dam once before fishing with a live bullfrog probably about 9 in in length. with a heavy weight (don't judge me) But I firmly believe I hooked a giant catfish that did nothing but go straight to extremely deep water then proceeded to spool me! I was using 20lb mono I also lost my father to Hoppes and this place will always be apart of me for the rest of my life. No matter the restrictions or consequences!

Wish there was more than the one place to put in. It sucks that the ramp doesn’t open till 6:30 being that it’s on private land. But they are alway friendly and helpful. Can get crowded late morning so we always try to get on the water as soon as the ramp opens. Always room on the water though. Ramp is also quite steep.
