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 keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
