It's very very tough, if not possible to fly fishing below the dam. I hit the dam once or twice a week, I know first hand. The current is very strong. big crowd every day, especially on weekends. The big fishes are at the hedge of the white water, which is about 70 yards or 80 yards away. The water coming out of the flood gate is cooler than the water coming out of generation on TX side. So big mamas are hiding in the cooler water. My friends and I are using surf rod at the Dam right now, we need to be able to hit the wall for big fish on top water. We are after 15#, 20# stripers, not interested in 2# or 3# babies. You may catch small stripers close to the bank, using clouser, small streamer, bucktail jig. The colors are white with chartreuse, red with white, pink with white, purple with white. If you want more info about fishing stripers with conventional gears, shoot me a pm. I am more than happy to share.
