I've seen some decent sized cats pulled out of the area right next to the parking lot. I've only caught small ones there myself, but everyone says the catfishing is good over there.

I prefer to hike down towards the railroad bridge. Avoid the crowds at the dam and deeper/slower water. Have had good luck on cats, carp and buffs. Kids love it too for the hiking.

It's been at least 15 years since I dropped a line in fresh water, but I've been away from the gulf for 2 years now and after reading about llela I'm thinking of giving it a shot. I used to fish for cats in conroe all the time, just deopping bread balls or raw bacon on the bottom. Any advice particular to this location I should know?

Gear-wise all I have is the 7ft ugly stik and baitcaster I used for reds, currently rigged with braided 20 lb test. Will that work for big catfish? Also curious about hook size/type.

That is all you need. I use what I believe is a 6/0 wide gap circle hook for bigger cats with a chunk of cut bait or live bluegill. I normally hike down stream closer to the railroad bridge. Deeper holes and lots of bait.

If they released some water all he'll break loose. Few week ago when I was there to check. you can cross the river without getting wet. But the water is good my favor set up would be is top water if you're are close to the dam.. boober and 5 feet line hook and bait. Let it flow down reel back in before it get snagged in the tree. I did alot top water last year in that dam.I lost too many sinker near the dam lol. But if you walk deep down bottom rig is good as well. Shad are plenty there but llela dam cast net is not allow.
