Senko, from my understanding the dam is always letting some water through. It holds back water when there is excess rain for future power generation. The dam buffers the flow of the lower river to some extent.

Fishing is sweet. I caught a bunch of crappie, some nice white bass, a few smallies and rock bass, a couple sauger and sheepshead and that one walleye that got away boat side. Morning started slow, was real busy after lunch.

Here the biggest of todays croixpie.

Nice slab Blueroof. I was out saturday and the crappies were still biting. I didn't get any that big, but a few 12 and 13's.

I would like to know what you used to catch the Amber Ale. I think there would be a lot more fisherman out there trying if you let us know. By the way, was there a fish in the picture?

Worms. If you can believe that! Earlier in the day I got a white bass (on a minnow) that had to have been well over 3lbs, didn't realize what a trophy that was. I would have never known if it wasn't for someone posting about the 27" bass out of Tonka. Everyone should take some time to look over the state record fish page, quality reading.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
