Most of this year has been terrible for fishing on the canal, but it's finally picked back up again. I got out three times this week with pretty good results. Caught a lot of 5 pounders, but these canal carp are pure muscle and even the little ones feel huge. Unfortunately, the warm weather has got a lot of pleasure boaters with their speedboats and jet skis out on the canal, and some days the barges never end. A big barge can get the water churning so much that it will be impossible to hold bottom for the rest of the day. With all the nuisances aside, I still caught some pretty nice fish up to 14lbs, including a mirror carp.

No, I've fished there quite a few times at different times of the year but never caught anything. I know as a fact that there are some BIG channel cats below those falls though

Where were you fishing on the canal. I've tried to find spots but can't find any.
