Take the road by the fish hatchery building & it will take you up near the base of the dam. You will have to walk less than 100 yards from there. There are numerous paths that will take you down to the water (fairly steep but manageable). Good populations of LMB, stripers/sandies, catfish & carp are there. Same goes for the area under the Hwy 16 bridge. With the lake levels back to normal there have been steady crowds of fishermen at both places on the weekends. It is MUCH quieter on the weekdays if you can make it out there.
