There’s nothing that gets me more excited than the threat of big fish and Melvin Price Lock and Dam has that threat! Were talking 100lb+ Blue Cats and Flatheads close behind. Your chances of hooking into something like that are probably fairly slim but you never know. I’ve fished this area only a handful of times, but the last few trips have been quite productive on medium sized Drum. I also managed a few other species including a grass Carp, two Largmouth Bass, two White Bass, and a Catfish. I primarily fished weedless Hammer Head Rough Dub Crayfish on the bottom using both a sink tip with long leader and heavy flies and a full sinking line with medium heavy flies. Even with the weedless flies, be prepared to loose 4 or 5 in any good outing. For the time being I don’t mind the Drum but in the future I will be looking to get into some more substantial action. Legend has it that the fly fishing for blue cats beneath the dams can really heat up in the winter time if you have a boat to get you to the prime water. Something I would really love to do.
