We got on the water about 7:30 - first fish at about 7:50, ended up with 4 and a catfish we let go - trout were about 1.5 lbs and taken on trolled night crawlers- with dodgers longlined about 100 feet out - seps small silver dodger got the last 3 right around the dam - the first one was a big fishbones looking silver dodger in front of the boat launch -

no catches on the downriggers except for that stupid brown catfish- like 8 in long, max!

wind picked up about 10 and it got pretty rough - we left the dam area and went over to turkey point and didnt get another catch all day - i got a couple hit and misses-

overall, fun!

While we were trolling the dam we saw at least 3 or 4 fish caught down around there, from shore- not sure what they were using, but it always seems that rainbow power bait or nightcrawlers are great there
