Warning: This info is circa 1990

The southwest shore always did well for us. We would fish next to a trio of elderly folks that bring a wheel barrow, bucket full of cornmeal, three extendable crappie rods. They would chum the lake and catch carp at the rate of 1 per 2-3 minutes. They would then trundle back to their rig and go. They also chummed the heck out of the water. Park guys knew biut didn't care since all they took out were barrowloads of carp.

I did well on good on a small chunk of chicken liver with no weight using my ultralight trout gear. Watched a kid collect scraps of line and a hook, bait it with fried chicken and tossing it out by hand land one over 20lbs on the north shore closest to the entrance booth.

I don't think there is really a bad spot for cats there

Yep, it's dairy runoff.But below the dam, the creek and all the other creeks that drain into the Prado basin are full of carp. Good bow fishing in those creeks.

I dont know the area very well. I've only been to the trap range and dog training park. Where do I need to go to access some of these creeks?

I grew up fishing all of those creeks. Sometimes EPIC fishing for bass, sunfish, catfish, and all the carp you could ask for. Big ones too. I used to park in a residential neighborhood for access, so I don't know if they would trip out from walking around there with a bow. Bishop may know the legalities on this.

Shoot me a PM if you want to some info on access spots.
