Hey this is a dumb question but what part is considered above and below the dam? Is the main part of la barrier park below the dam?What were you using and what area? I was there on Saturday and got three tiny pike below the damn on a white twister tail, but fished right above the damn for an hour with a pickerel rig and a catfish rig with no bites.
I went today with my kids. Water is up higher than it has been most of the summer. It's even flowing steadily over the dam. I caught a small pike just above the dam on a white twister tail and my son was getting some nibbles on a worm 2 feet below a bobber, but wasn't able to hook any. I had no luck below the dam with a mepps spinner and the worms/bobber combo. There were a lot of floating weeds to avoid. I would've liked to try out some other bait/lures, but my kids were getting antsy.Has anyone been to La Barriere recently? I'm wondering if things have improved with all the rain in the last 2-3 weeks.
