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.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
