well after work yday finally made it out to w. branch with my fishing gear. walked on the dam for an eternity b4 i tried my first spot. lots of joggers and walkers. anyways got a rock bass right away. then nothing for about an hour. around 8:15 crappies turn on and i get about 15 of them...all small, but fun to catch on a first trip to a new lake. thanks to the guys for the tips and for those who let me know u can fish on the dam. i think im gonna go back today b/c i only live 23 minutes away.
