I have only tried a couple times. I was there around the tail end of the silver run last fall and didnt see anything. I did see a few seals though, so makes me think there are fish there. I havent even caught any bullheads there! Although one time I was just out for a bike ride and went by the boat launch and saw a silver or two rught under the large dock. No pole in hand though.
I went out there at the north end once, and just worked my way along the shore northward. Didn't catch or see anything, but there are some spots that look promising, with rocks and other features. Seems like some fun exploration would be to just start at Golden Gardens and work your way toward Carkeek and then head back. If anything, you get a nice wade and a few less beachgoers to worry about. Hope you have fun if you head out this morning Curtis.
Well, I was there for about an hour trying a couple different clousers, and a gurgler pattern shown to me by gigharborflyfisher a while back. Fished the farther end by the foot bridge. The wind wasnt too bad but was still a pain in the ass.
