Got off work after a night shift and started fishing at 6:40 am. It was a beautiful day with some good size fish hitting the other side. I don't know if it's possible to drive there so I stayed on the right facing the dam. I threw my whole tackle box at them for only a nibble on a silver cast master. I did catch a 20" fish. I knew right off the bat it was heavy but not a trout. All in all first sucker fish I have ever caught and a new place I intend to go back again soon.

When I was a kid that spot was called the potluck hole. I haven't heard it called that in years.

It is such a great looking spot. Good spot for trout...at least it use to be. There are some big one's in there but not easy to catch. Most of the fish I have caught there have been around the pump house thing or just above it.
