Got to my spot at the dam well before sun up Saturday. Landed a 17” just after sunrise and the next about 1/2 hour later. Fun as hell on 2lb. There is some biggins to be caught right from shore now. Made some killer Mediterranean sautéed trout for dinner tonight.

Nice! I fish up there quite a bit, that’s not an easy score this time of year. Did you fish a Carolina rig or a slip bobber. It’s tricky to target depth by the damn off the bottom since the slope is so steep in that area and at the same time it can be windy, messing up the slip bobber game.

Damn nice fish!
I fish by the Red House pretty regular, I haven't tried by the dam, but maybe I should.
Heading up tonight.
Thanks for the report.

I caught those at the dam using a Carolina rig with a slide egg sinker and at least 3-4’ leader with a small treble and powerbait. I find you have to use lightest test possible or they won’t play.

How is the Lake water level, was up there last summer, lowest I had seen it in decades. Used to fish by the Red House once a month during high school years. Nice fish, and damn, nice looking dish!

Water level is way up from last year. There is even a good amount east of Stanfield Cutoff.
