The is a good place about a quarter mile south of the landing. Park by the compost site and walk the path to where the culvert is. We have always had good luck catching almost anything there...Cats, walleye, carp...etc

Thee are several good areas to shore fish on pool 2. The biggest draw back is how far do you want to walk?

got about a 16 pound flat last tuesday my biggest cat of the year had a couple decent runs that night to might have been bigger fish, the smallies r still bitin. the culvert is a really good spot early in the season for walleyes, Ive caught a 12 pounder down there about six years ago, and my biggest flathead i pulled up at the culvert around thirty pounds, right now Ive been fishin places ive never fished before around the rocks that cover alot of ground in SSp ive been finding alot of deeper water and i think thats the ticket right now good luck.

That is why my son-in-law liked the culvert before he moved to FLA....there was a hole just down stream and the eddies around it held some nice CATS.....he had one scream his line that he swears ended up in Hastings...just kidding, but he did a lot of cat fishing and that one is still out there. He never saw it. Someday I have to get back down there, too bad they closed the parking lot to visitors down by Harwell.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
