OK went out Sat night and did soome cat fishing from the shore. Had two cat rods out one rigged for bottom and the other under a bobber both baited with fresh cut bluegill. Ended up catching two Yellow Bellied Slider Turtles a two pound channel and a hand full of gill(on my pan rod) wasn't a total loss but not as good as it could have been. BTW I never had much luck with cats at Beaverdam.

I've never done well at BD either for Cats. I used to go on around weaver rd to the bridge where the water is deeper but it is a steep pile of rocks to climb up and down and it gets "snakey"....

What part of the shoreline were you fishing from at Beaver Dam?

I was fishing right behind the Ranger Residence(the ranger is my buddy) off the sunk road bed off Old Weaver Trail. The water level was pretty low, and I dont think I was in the best spot now that I think about it.

Not too deep out there until you get to the main lake, maybe 8 at the highest point!

Far as night fishing, and out of the park access, the bridge is about it, there is a path to the shore past the bridge, but it's shallow out there, but a nice long cast would put you in some deeper water, no snakey rocks either :)

We enter an Old Weaver trails and canoe over to the first inlet on the left. We I see bass jumping in the morning roughly 30 - 40 yards off of the bank. I cannot get them to bite. Any suggestions for a beginner and his son?
