Took grandpa to the spillway last night... Ya know he is in his 60's and has MS. So it is important to find a spot which has easy access and where he can catch fish. Well this time this was the spot. We arrived about 6pm and by 6:45 grandpa had his first fish. a very healthy 4 lbs 23" cat. Great lookin fish!! It has been quite some time since he has caught a fish that large!!! 50 min later he caught his twin brother. Looked identical, but fought a little harder. It was a challenge for him to walk the fish around the spillway wall so I could take him off the hook for him on the beach. Fun Times. We used a #14 garden hackle!! Works everytime.

Best of luck all

Well,

I love fishing with him, its the being outfished I have such a problem with. :-\ Anyway, hopefully I will get another chance this week. As far as the "other" spillway, I'm actually on the local dive team and have personally, and up close seen the large fish in that body of water. That is actually a naturally fed spring which is uncap-able. It's only about 25 ft deep, but it has some Nice size wally's, cat and bucketmouths.

I think this week I will try the spot by the south boat ramp as you come in from the main road. If you take a right there instead of a left you can park right by some bathrooms. I have fished there before and gotten some monster bites with no fish, but would like to try it again with some cut carp. Anyone got any info.
