Would you agree that trout of all species are attracted to the current right below a dam? I am thinking of top overflow type of dam, just a solid huge piece of concrete that blocks the flow. This is especially true in spring and somewhat in fall too. Thank you!Posted on August 17th, 2017
Hi Angler, not necessarily. Trout can hold in any part of a tributary from any dam or other natural obstructions (like waterfalls), right down to the main lake. The only reason they often amass below a dam is because it is a major obstruction and they may not be able to negotiate past it (unless the dam is low, like a weir, or there is a fish ladder).
