Camden Dam update
IFS officers recently visited Camden Dam and were happy to see the water lapping on top of the spillway. With recent rains in the states north, the lake is full and been fishing well for shore based lure anglers.
We are excited about the future prospects of this beautiful fishery. Having many inflowing streams, it won’t take long for Camden Dam to quickly populate.
