Catfish are here in good numbers and many anglers do target them here.  Channel catfish are more abundant than flathead catfish, but there is a fishable population of flathead catfish here too.  Target the creeks and bays in the spring and early summer and then fish the main lake from summer through the fall.  Many anglers do well for catfish by the tailwater areas below the dam.  This is a good spot to catch channel catfish and flathead catfish.  It’s known as a big fish spot too with some huge catfish just living below the dam gorging on shad.
