what did you use fishing mckinney to catch with - i`m new into fishing here and new fishin from a yakI have fished it many times in the past using a small gheenue. I've caught bream, crappie,chain pickeral (jack)and a few bass and saw a few carp but it was about three years ago. There are lots of stumps in the head. It is fairly shallow up there and about 15 ft at the spillway. There is not a cement landing but it has a hard bottom to put a small boat into near the pier.
