The river there is quite interesting. I was always under the impression that it was nothing but mud upstream from the dam but I was quite surprised when I realized that it was pure bedrock. One really interesting thing is that there is a notch that runs with the river. Apparently, the notch was cut many years ago to give the river a bit of depth for boating. The river drops from 2 or 3 feet all the way down to 7 feet or more. Wading this part can be a bit dangerous if you aren't aware of this notch as it literally drops straight down.
I didn't catch anything in that section, but I can see a ton of potential if you fish the notch correctly. I headed a bit downstream of the dam next and managed one largemouth bass. It wasn't very big, but it was good to catch one there. There is a lot of concern about the silt that was released when the dam was removed, but it looks like nature is doing its thing and the fish are doing OK.
After that, I took a couple of pictures of the newly removed damn now that it is completed. I must say that it looks great! Once the native plants and grass grow on the newly exposed land, it will look like a very natural area in the middle of an urban setting.
Although the conditions were a bit tough that weekend, we managed to accomplish both! Woz landed a nice 40+ musky on a big double 10 bladed spinner and I came in with a small 32" on a sucker. The sucker was hung up in some weeds, so I started to pull it out when it got slammed! It was really neat to watch the entire thing unfold.
|Nice fish, Woz! I like the Lucid Grips, too ;)|
|My little ski that could....|
|The sunset on Sunday was incredible!!!|
With Woz's help, we were able to put together a fantastic little promo video that I have been wanting to do for quite some time! Head over to Predator-Pursuit.com and check it out!! It's right on the home page.
