It is a beautiful place alright. Just so you know it gets windy there (espescially near the dam end) in the afternoon. If you have the time, make the short drive down the highway to the sign reading "Detroit Dam Powerhouse" or words to that effect. This will lead you to Big Cliff Reservoir (a re-regulation reservoir for Detroit), which is not only a beautiful spot, but one that can hold some large hold-over and planted trout. Good luck and have fun,

X 2, on the Big Cliff suggestion.

Also...LOTS of smallish "truck trout" are piled up in front of Tumble Creek and the French Creek/Breitenbush river inlets (of Detroit). And there are some Chinokanee out in the middle/deeper parts.
