You can fish and access it from either side, although i do not know how to get to the fargo side. (Directions to moorhead side) Go south down eigth street take a right on 40th avenue follow till you get to river oak point take a right and go all the way to the dead end. there is a park at the end and the dam will be on the left side in the park. There is also a boat access on the nd side if you can find that.

Directions to the Fargo side. Take 32nd ave S. East until you hit the park on the East side of University. Park at the warming shack. Walk down on the paved/gravel road.

I've never fished the south dam, How is it compared to the North dam, and preferences?

Less crowded and more bank area to fish. Fishing is just as good there for cats. I think people pound the north dam because it is the first obstruction for fish swimming upstream from Grand Forks. I guess people forget that the "dams" no longer keep fish from swimming through Fargo. I prefer to fish the south over the north or midtown.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
