Crappie are best fished from a boat, the boat houses or any other place with shade should hold some Crappie, I think they will be around by then.

The Catfish are everywhere, you should have no trouble with them.

I have never bobber fished for catfish, how do you set it up and how deep do you fish. Also was wondering how close to the bank do you fish with it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Just a 1/4-1/2oz jig head under a sliding bobber. Worms, shrimp or crickets worked great. Cast at max 30 ft out, look for schools finning or gulping carp eggs/fry. Cats averaged 3-4lbs each many larger, very few smaller. Kids caught 20-30 in about 3-4 hours. Had a great day, where they had 22 in one hour. I was busy baiting that day! We didn't get many crappie, most seemed to be dying from sores on their mouths.

I always fish right below the dam from there and i go mid may usally and kill it. mass amount of crappie and great catfishing and amazing bass fishing. but this year it was cold too long the snow melt was still coming down in may and blew the river out so now would prolly be a great time to go.
