My question is how do you pick a good wing dam or are they all the same? So when you come up on one how do you postion your boat or do you just pull up and fish from shore? I have fished down there twice and came up the the big zero but that was all new water for me but no ready to give up on it. I am use to fishing on the minnesota river with brush piles, and stuff like that the missiouri is a new river for me just some info would help. Thanks alot guys.TeamAsgrowParticipantMarch 24, 2009 at 8:15 pmPost count: 9152skunkyParticipantMarch 24, 2009 at 11:37 pmPost count: 103flathead35ParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 4:34 pmPost count: 9bowtech777ParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 5:06 pmPost count: 588::
I live in sioux city and have fished most of the wingdams from sioux city south past weedland access have caught alot of big flat heads and channels off these from boat and shore also a few bonus walleyes and small mouths some wingdams are alot better then other some have really deep holes that will hold cats just stacked up in them ever want some one to fish with just drop me a line 😀 i have heard of some nice channels being caught right off the wing dams by the marina in sioux city that was last week that i heard that so maybe another warm spell i will get out and try it frozen shad and large minnows is what i heard people where catching them also have a few other places that i know hold cats this time of year and walleyesmattcondonParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 6:36 pmPost count: 584::

So for flatheads you guys post up the down stream side of the wing dam don’t you fish the up stream side those are more active fish right?
You’re going to want to fish the downstream side for pretty much anything. The majority of the time anyway… I don’t think I’ve ever caught anything on the north side of one of those wingdams. I suppose if there were some kind of heavy, fish-holding cover immediately upstream of the dam to fish downstream of it could be worth it.kenhumpParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 7:02 pmPost count: 12770bowtech777ParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 7:06 pmPost count: 588kenhumpParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 7:24 pmPost count: 12770flathead35ParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 7:39 pmPost count: 9bowtech777ParticipantMarch 25, 2009 at 7:43 pmPost count: 588::
i have been tryin to line of a decent partner to fish the missiouri cat fish tourny that the have here in sioux city during the summer i believe its in july or august not for sure on a date but i know of one other good spot to fish this time of the spring its down where port neal pumps into the river south of weedland access hold huge numbers of fish we have litterally fished there in the spring and only been able to fish one pole at a time due to the bite being so hot its a blast anything from 30lb drum to walleyes to cat fish and the back side of snyders bend where the cooling ponds are is a great place as well just some of my little hot spotskenhumpParticipantMarch 26, 2009 at 2:48 amPost count: 12770flathead35ParticipantMarch 26, 2009 at 12:20 pmPost count: 9::
Ken have tried it alot of channels, and to many people for me. You can take the boat out there but can only go so far but not that many flatheads this far north and the way the gas is driving to the minnesota river get alittle expensive every weekend. So kind of looking for some place closer with same quality of fish so Ive been reading that the lower part of the big sioux is good for flatheads and I guess the missiouri is good just havent had any luck but have only tried it twice in two years.
